Way back when Razberry Juice was still very wet behind its ears, I wrote an article (HERE) about Facebook, declaring my lack of a page on the social media website. A lot has changed since then, Razberry Juice has grown into the magazine I am so very proud of, I have had a baby (now a crazy toddler, who I am also so very proud of) and the rise of social media has continued at a pace which is almost eye-wateringly fast, worming its way seemingly into every part of our personal and business lives. However what has not changed is my resolute decision to not have a personal Facebook page. I should perhaps at this point acknowledge that at RazberyJuice.com we do use social media extensively, in particular Twitter and have always been unfailingly impressed and surprised at the interactions with our readers via their tweets, we make contacts, meet new interesting people and keep our readership informed of what is happening on Twitter and Facebook.
After BAFTA winning studios, Bossa told us all about their new Facebook game, Merlin: The Game, and we all lost a few hours in necessary research playing! We of course went back to them and asked very nicely for an interview!

When East Side Games dropped us a ‘hi’ to tell us about their latest release Ruby Skies, we took the opportunity to learn more about the company, and in the process learn a little more about the gaming industry especially as regards the ever growing and popular social networks and mobile platforms. What really caught our attention about East Side Games, besides the fact that they make some pretty cool games, was the independent label thing, it brings back the days when one man game companies produced some truly classic games from their bedrooms?

I am pretty computer savvy, I spend far more time than I should online, I write for a online magazine, am a gamer, website designer and I talk more to my friends via Skype than I ever
actually see them in person! With all that said, there is one thing that I most definitely and happily live without, something I have no intention of changing…….
"My name is Elizabeth Clarke, and I don't have a Facebook page….."
