Zynga v Facebook - the row calms down(update)

New five year accord signed

The bitter row over Zynga games on the Facebook social networking site (see previous InfoPowa reports) appears to have been settled, with the companies announcing that they have inked a new five year agreement.

The two warring parties had earlier clashed over Facebook's demand for a 30 percent cut in the gaming fees charged to Facebook users by Zynga, a San Francisco-based games developer that boasts over 230 million active users monthly, and whose Texas Hold'Em Poker game is a major fave with Facebook fans, attracting a staggering 28 million users.

The disagreement resulted in threats by Zynga - apparently Facebook's biggest provider - to start its own social gaming network Zynga Live after Facebook hinted that it might shut down Zynga games completely on the massively popular site.

Who gave ground in the renewed and successful negotiations leading up to the new agreement is not known, because neither company has released any details.
