An article was published by CNN in which Sid Meier talks about 'Civilization World', the facebook Civilization game. --> Link. Summary: Developers hope to have CivWorld up and running in the few months ("this summer"). Meier- "We really weren't looking to make a quote-unquote 'Facebook game'. We were looking at what does Facebook bring us that is unique, that we can leverage and take advantage of with 'Civilization'-style game play." Co-operative focus is key, and the pacing of the game is radically different to PC iterations of Civilization. Discussion thread here, and thanks to Civrules and MeteorPunch for the news tip.
