anyone use the Facebook Ranking Board?

Hi I would like to know, does anyone always use the facebook ranking board?

Actually most of the games that provide ranking board feature includes 3 kinds of ranking system, namely local, facebook and global.

To me, I like to post my latest game results on facebook newsfeed. But I had almost never opened the facebook ranking board to check the ranking among my friends.Instead, I always open the global ranking board to check how far for me to beat into the world record.

And I found this habit also happens on my surrounding friends, thus I am thinking should we just simple skip the implementation of facebook ranking board?

Does it situation only happens on me? Or actually not much people will really check the facebook ranking board?

Imho...

I think you should still keep the Facebook ranking, as like you mentionned it get posted into your newsfeed. Which means that people that follow you on Facebook will know you've got X score in Y game. Then it might pick their interest/curiosity to see what is the Y game and try to find more information abou it ;-) and they can become potential customers!

Yes I agree that the facebook newsfeed part should be kept in the game, but not necessary for the rankboard part
I found that most of the people will use the "post reesult to facebook newsfeed" function but not "check facebook rank board" function

so I wonder is it a possible decision to keep only the newsfeed function and discard the facebook ranking board function~~
