Gamification / Habit-Forming Products

I found this very informative introduction article on how addiction works in products such as Facebook or Candycrush on Wired.

I've been exposed to the concepts in the recent years thanks to a friend of mine who became an expert on gamification. It turns out that the mechanics used to get you hooks on different video games were extracted and are now used to get you hooked on different products.
