Zynga makes an announcement which affects Facebook

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.

    Hello are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I am using WordPress. It’s very simple and user friendly. No need for coding knowledge.
