If AppData's numbers are right (Facebook is a critic), Zynga (ZNGA -2.2%) has seen a pretty big drop in its monthly active user (MAU) count in recent weeks. The app analytics firm estimates Zynga now has 270.5M MAUs for its 95 Facebook-linked games, down from 272.4M a week ago and 293.9M on Dec. 7. Zynga reported having 311M total MAUs at the end of Q3.

    Yeah, I feared that it would happen because CityVille 2 showed great promise only to be ruined by so many bugs that seems can't be solved by coders since the launch. Those coders for CityVille 2 should be fired. CityVille 2 had a chance to surpass FarmVille 2 but failed.. I play CityVille 2 and love it but kept reporting same bugs so many times over 2 months via Live Chat. By the way, Live Chat is AWESOME! Always reply to me less than 1 minute wait time and very friendly. But it's not their fault for the problem of CV2. It's coders.. Coders killed CV2..

    It is, somewhat irrelevant, how many MAU (monthly average useers) there are. if every one plays free games!!! Question is, how does ZINGA Monetizes, its Monthly average users? MAU number could go down by 50% as long as those who buy accessories increases. That is the bottom line and that where the money is.. I conjecture if they Launch, Pocker games, in England, as they are promoting it there, and then get liensed in USA. I read that Zinga is AIMING For, SIN CITY, VEGAS...))) Casino's attendance is down. People love to play at home or at work..!!! That is where the Money is..Then it would and could do very well. If that is the fact, it would be a great time to buy now!!! reward could be higher than risk..!!!

    With due respect, Nocifer, how awesome is live chat when it's done nothing but spend your time talking to people reporting the same thing over and over for two months and nothing is done? Does that improve your game play?

    Live Chat had given me many free stuff just to keep me happy so nothing lost there.. They did fix many bugs on the fly if it was doable so that helped me. It's coders themselves that "destroyed" CityVille 2 big time.. Coders were clueless how to fix neighborhood system bug and many others..
