Facebook and Zynga cut their ties

another random user (2645241) writes | about a year and a half ago

another random user (2645241) writes "Facebook and Zynga have amended an agreement that gave the games developer strong access to the social network's one billion users.

Zynga is the developer behind Farmville, a game once mostly played on Facebook, which at its peak attracted 82 million players a month.

Zynga now has its own games platform, but players will no longer be able to share their progress on Facebook.

Zynga's share price fell by 13% in after-hours trading following the news. It is the latest blow for the company, which last month announced job cuts and studio closures.

The change, which will take place from 31 March 2013, ends Zynga's ability to promote its Zynga.com platform on Facebook."

No more annoying game requests? (1)

Does this mean I will stop getting all those annoying game requests in BookFace? I don't have time to water digital crops, I am busy watering my real garden...
