03/03/2014, Zynga has gone through some rather tough times last year with the shedding of their workforce (up to 18%), but I suppose it makes sense that when one hits rock bottom, there is no where else to go but up. Zynga intends to make the most out of this year, where they have plans to introduce a trio of new and yet instantly recognizable mobile games. FarmVille 2: Country Escape […]
01/06/2014, The amount of news surrounding Bitcoin these days is just too much to ignore. After all it is related to money, and whenever money is concerned, you can bet there will be just as many people interested. For those learning about Bitcoin for the first time, it is essentially a virtual currency that is used digitally which also relies on cryptography to control its creation as well as transfer of […]
09/27/2013, Even if you don’t play this insanely popular game on Facebook, you’ve probably heard about it or have received a request from one of your Facebook friends. Right now, Candy Crush Saga is the most popular game being played on the world’s largest social network. It logged 9.7 million daily active users back in January, breaking FarmVille 2′s record of 8.7 million daily active users. U.K. based King is the developer of […]
07/31/2013, Some of you guys might have heard of Zynga’s “with friends” series of games, like Words With Friends being one of them. Some of you might have also heard of a parody type of app called Bang With Friends, which is essentially an app that allows people to hook up with each other for casual sex. Given that the names are somewhat similar, we’re surprised it actually took Zynga this […]
07/08/2013, You might have heard the reports of Don Mattrick, the former Microsoft executive who ran Microsoft’s Xbox business, leaving for Zynga, and it turns out that Microsoft and Zynga could be more closely related than we might have initially thought. According to report on Bloomberg, word on the street has it that prior to Mattrick leaving for Zynga, he had attempted to acquire Zynga on Microsoft’s behalf. This attempt at […]
07/04/2013, A company’s customer service can sometimes make or break the reputation of the firm. After all these are the people you turn to for help when there’s something wrong with the product, and if an inadequate response is given, customers could lose faith in the company and might start seeking alternatives. In Zynga’s case it looks like they might have accidentally dropped the ball for the customer service for one […]

06/25/2013, Pokki is set to deliver Zynga.com games to Acer computers.
06/05/2013, It was just last year when OMGPop’s game, Draw Something, was something of a huge hit, to the extent where screen captures of the game started appearing on my Facebook newsfeed. Due to huge popularity, Zynga decided to acquire the company, hoping that it will be able to build off the success of Draw Something. Unfortunately it seems that the novelty of the game quickly wore off, losing as many […]
06/04/2013, Zynga has decided to cut down on their workforce by 18%.
05/10/2013, Earlier this year, Zynga revealed they were working on a new “with friends” game called Running with Friends as an endless runner game set in Spain. The game seemed to have borrowed much of what made Temple Run so popular, and Running with Friends is now officially available. In Running with Friends, you’ll be running through the streets of Pamplona, Spain for one of its most recognized traditions, the running […]
04/24/2013, Zynga certainly had quite a massive hit with the Draw Something game last year, although they will need far more than just Draw Something to keep the company’s earnings results in line with expectations from the general market. Well, you know how the saying goes – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, which is why a sequel to Draw Something leaked sometime in the middle of last month, and […]
01/21/2013, Imangi Studios released Temple Run 2 last week and almost immediately ran up the App Store’s free games category to the top spot. Endless runners have been extremely popular on mobile devices as they’re a great way to pass the time, regardless if you have two minutes or two hours to kill. So who better than Zynga to release their own endless runner game on mobile seeing as they were […]
01/17/2013, For a number of years, Zynga has been sitting atop the Facebook-gaming mountain as their games have always been popular ever since FarmVille. The last couple of months haven’t been too kind for the king of Facebook gaming as it’s been sued for copyright infringement by EA and has shut down a number of its titles just to save a buck. It looks like their popularity is slowly dwindling as today, […]
