One Response to “Facebook Games Have Peaked”

  1. Jeff Weinstein said

    I’ve seen several articles about the drop in users for Zynga games in the last week. They failed to mention the fact that Zynga started requiring that its users share their email addresses with Zynga. I saw a bunch of friends quit all Zynga games rather than give up their email address. I bet a large chunk of their departing users did so because of the new requirement. I suppose it is all part of Zynga’s plan to extract itself from facebook. If they can get current user’s email addresses, they can try and hook them back in to a facebook-less Zynga.
