Great and perfecting timed article in the Wall Street Journal today re: Zynga announcing today that they’re officially set up to allow their user to play their games such as “Farmville” and my personal favorite “Words with Friends” directly via their own site versus having to connect via a Facebook link.
I’m not sure of the immediate financial impact this has on Facebook since Facebook and Zynga are both technically free unless you opt to upgrade or buy tokens. I do however think this puts a bit of a wrinkle in Facebook’s IPO valuation which is already being debated.
We’ll have to wait and see but anyone thinking of wanting to buy Facebook shares need to do their research.
