Heard Zynga is a pretty wretched place to work. That they have hellish release cycles.

Then again, when you shamelessly steal other game ideas, how hard could it be, really...?

The people at Zynga got over their heads with greed. Who in the right investor mind would say: "Yes, i can see a social game website being used in a different social network company, be worth more than $11 billion." Since it already has 330 million active users, how much more can you ask? Its not like every 7 billion person on earth has a computer, internet and time to actually use such medium.

Maybe the analysts are just a big consortium of short sellers manipulating market expectation for profit /tinfoilhat

Yeah, Zynga's suppose to have a horrid work environment, especially if you were an employee that chose to hold his stock instead of cashing it out right after the IPO when so many other employees did.

If you presume that such thing can be said only by conspiracy theorist/crazy person you are in for a big surprise when you find out that reality is much crazier. Whole theory of measuring economic strength of company using market share is tower hanging in thin air. Just like the tier 3 capital is profitable investment.

I always knew, even before all the analysts started to say that social gaming and SNS sites will be the next big thing, that those services were truly overrated, and they will never even beat traditional gaming and communication services in terms of cashflow and profitability.

Zynga is a company that doesn't sell any product. What did they expect to happen when they went public, that people would bat their eyes at the not having a selling product issue? Zynga relies on other companies' sites to use their F2P games and gets paid in advertisement revenue. They rely on people clicking on adds rather than actually selling a product. With people not clicking many ads, they were bound to fail. That's generally what happens to companies that don't sell anything.

That they relied on a social networking site is even more stupid. Those things come and go in a matter of a few years and even while they're there, they are not reliable sources of income.
