The parties acknowledge that FB desires to enable Zynga to build the Zynga Platform on top of the Facebook Platform, and the parties desire to, amongst other goals set forth herein, work together to increase the number of users of each party’s products and services.
The parties further acknowledge that Zynga is making a significant commitment to the Facebook Platform (i.e., using Facebook as the exclusive Social Platform on the Zynga Properties and granting FB certain title exclusivities to Zynga games on the Facebook Platform).
I still think Facebook needs ZNGA more than ZNGA needs FB.
ZNGA has over 2000 employees world wide and they are in several Countries.
They have the money and the resources to go it alone...
FB on the other-hand would find it rough sledding without ZNGA... These games are already baked in. There are several million addicted to these games... I know, I see it first hand with my family across the country.
This is unfolding just as I thought, and it keeps getting better and better.... I still am the only one I have seen suggest if anyone buys anybody it would be ZNGA buying FB.... Maybe that's what MZ want's??? He and all his clones are already set for life!!!
The new filing, however, does disclose an ad revenue sharing agreement with Zynga. The clause is referring to Zynga's websites outside of Facebook.com that implement Facebook ads, according to another part of the filing:
"Each month during the Term, for all Properties on which you implemented, during the previous month, the Facebook Ad Unit, we will pay you a percentage of Net Revenue arising from such Properties for the previous month."
This is effing huge for ZNGA - this is N E W!!! FB will be the most anticipated IPO maybe ever. ZNGA to $20 before the IPO on this - at least.
Read it Yourself: Facebook needs ZNGA even more than they told us last week in their initial filing so they had to ammend it today...Go ZNGA!!!!
I don't see how this could be bad in anyway! It will make for an interesting session tomorrow. Here is the link...
Facebook is relying on Zynga a lot more than they had said previously...thus they had to ammend their statement. ZNGA is now the only way to play Facebook until Facebook IPO in May...This maybe much higher by then IMO.
this is huge. good huge or bad huge, not sure. maybe zynga shouldn't limit itself so much. but terms are for 5 years. where else do people go but to facebook? but, really, tightly coupling is not such a great idea in my opinion. i still think its ok for starters and i'm buying more znga. maybe fb will end up buying them.
