I'm glad I brought this up!

Farmville does let you spend money, I believe.  They will take your  
charge card to let you jump in the points level.  Farmville is run by  
another company, but only allowed on Facebook with their blessings.

I avoided Farmville as long as I could, but one of my lecturers/ 
professors as well as several fellow employees are on it.  I felt  
left out.
