Zynga Chief Financial Officer Leaves For Facebook

GR writes: "Just a year ago, Zynga was looking like the next great success story. However, that story has quickly changed culture in a matter of months, and yet another one of its officers has left the company." (Casual games, Zynga)

We are witnessing the downfall of Zynga, and a perfect example at how unstable the mobile/facebook market can be.

Can't say I'm all too surprised/disappointed.

I can't say I even know what Zynga IS....

As is any new market. I think people forget how recently these companies sprung up.

I have started playing Words with Friends again, but it's not the same anyway. They need to change up their business model fast.

Rats are the first to know when a ship starts sinking...

You know your screwed when an excess of rats are in the ocean rather than on your boat...

It's never good to see job loss or failure, but Zynga definitely outgrew itself.

Yep, Zynga just grew way too fast. Kinda like Boston Market on the East Coast.

But why Facebook?
Facebook is slowly falling apart as well.

So, he left one company that's falling apart for another one that just isn't falling apart "as fast"?

True, but it makes sense money wise. And not very many people can put Facebook on their resume/CV
