Social game giant Zynga announced their Q2 results yesterday and things were looking pretty good.

Sim City Social Aiming Directly For Zynga In New Video

The social gaming world is getting more and more cut throat as the days go by.

SCOTUS Was Probably Too Busy Today for Facebook, Zynga, LinkedIn, & Yahoo

It’s reasonable to believe that the U.S. Supreme Court only had one item to mark off on its to-do list for today, the last day of the term: make a decision on President Obama’s health care law. Given the gravity of the court’s ruling, the internet has been buzzing about little else since the decision was announced shortly after 10AM …

Zynga Games About To Be Flooded With Foul-Mouthed 12-Year-Olds

While I don’t play Zynga’s games, I praise them for their simplistic take on competition. Players enjoy a single-player experience and let others know through charming Facebook posts that it’s the opponent’s turn or that they beat a high score. It’s non-threatening and conducive to a wholesome family environment. In a move that will single-handedly destroy that wholesome environment, Zynga …

Since going public last year Zynga hasn’t really had the best of times. Its overall value has dropped 40% since December.
