    It's a good thing.. but don't expect people to leave Facebook to play on Zynga's website. People play Zynga games because it's on Facebook, not the other way around. Zynga should of had this platform a LONG time ago, now they're just playing catch up. I'm bullish Zynga but the market overreacted with today's rise.

    There is much hype around both Zynga and Facebook, social media trends are skyrocketing, pretty soon the Facebook/Zynga generation will be looking to the younger generation for social media trends. i totally agree that they should have created when they first started giving Facebook 30% of their revenues, only till recently has Zynga started to realize the possibilities of the FB IPO, not heading in the direction that most people want it to --> (PAYDAY) 100 Billion potential IPO we may have to look this gift horse in the mouth.
