Submission + - Facebook and Zynga cut their ties ( 1

another random user writes: Facebook and Zynga have amended an agreement that gave the games developer strong access to the social network's one billion users.

Zynga is the developer behind Farmville, a game once mostly played on Facebook, which at its peak attracted 82 million players a month.

Zynga now has its own games platform, but players will no longer be able to share their progress on Facebook.

Zynga's share price fell by 13% in after-hours trading following the news. It is the latest blow for the company, which last month announced job cuts and studio closures.

The change, which will take place from 31 March 2013, ends Zynga's ability to promote its platform on Facebook.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
