Facebook (FB +0.7%) has unveiled a big overhaul for its popular Open Graph social sharing platform, with an eye towards reducing spam. "Custom actions" from developers that automatically share activity won't be allowed, and an API that allows users to post activity to a friend's wall is gone. On the other hand, Open Graph content with images and location data will be given more prominence. Facebook has already worked to reduce game-related spam, something that appears to be affecting Zynga's results.

    FB needs to distance themselves from Zynga or acquire them. Zynga has all kinds of problems, and it starts at the top/CEO. If FB acquired Zynga at their Enterprise Value, which would be a drop in the bucket for FB, they could make the FB / Social Games a much more seamless fit. Zynga is on its own program which is not helping them or FB.
