The way the game is played has been altered to match the social aspects of Facebook. Much like how the retail versions of The Sims have AI-controlled neighbors, The Sims Social will have user-controlled ones.

Friendships, rivalries, and even relationships can then be had on a sim-to-sim level — all in the name of entertainment, of course.
