BBM (Blackberry Messenger) started out as your average instant messenger app. However, as its popularity increased at tremendous speed, BBM soon transformed into a social platform. This transformation was possible due to the latest upgrade, the BBM6 Integration. Nowadays, with an astonishing number of 60 million users, BBM seems to want to add a gaming platform to its structure. According to Thorsten Heins, the Blackberry CEO, this app sends over 10 billion messages each day. It seems that people are using this app not only to communicate important information, but also to waste some time when they are bored. These being said, what better way is there to waste time than by playing games. It is pretty obvious that BBM’s goal is to attract as many users as possible and since gaming platforms generate a lot of revenue, it is quite possible that BBM will turn its attention towards mobile games soon.
