When you think of gamers, you don’t normally think of social butterflies, right? However, a new study from mobile social network MocoSpace found some very interesting discoveries regarding gamers and their social behavior. According to the study, gamers are actually more social than non-gamers.
“If you were a game player, you actually spent more time socializing, interacting with your friends,” Imran Malek, the Business Development Manager of MocoSpace, told WebProNews.
MocoSpace surveyed 10,000 people and split them into 2 groups: gamers and non-gamers. Malek explained that gamers are more social because the games often encourage users to interact with their friends. In other words, people are incentivized to have more friends.
Do these findings surprise you?
