As Kabam has been very active on both the Android and Facebook gaming platforms, launching games like _Kingdoms of Camelot_ (which just surpassed $200 million in revenue) and _The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age_, as well as Android titles like the _Arcane Empires_ and the upcoming _Fast & Furious 6_ mobile game (Kabam currently has two of the Top 20 grossing games on the Google Play store, _The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth_ at #13 and _Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North_ at #17), we’re in a very unique position to speak on the announcement. Kabam's VP of Corporate Communications, Steve Swasey, has issued the following statement concerning the announcement: > "Facebook changed the way the world socializes.  Now they've come up with a clever way to put people, not apps, first on Android phones.  For gamers, the Chat Head feature is particularly awesome -- it's a great way to interact with both your gamer and non-gamer friends without losing your place in the game.  It's kind of like when someone walks in the room when you're playing.  No disruption.
