Surprised I haven't seen this brought up here. Zynga, the Farmville/Mafia Wars place, is imploding. Their shares have taken a pounding, and now a bunch of executives look to be involved in insider trading (selling your stock based on knowing something non-public, before it loses its value. It's illegal!).
The Bomb crew brought up Facebook gaming's flaws before, and the company didn't seem airtight in the first place. That ridiculously expensive acquisition of the Draw Something guys had me scratching my head, for example. Then I saw Mark Pincus's mission statement in the wiki (an employee quoted this, take it as that): "I don't fucking want innovation...You're not smarter than your competitor. Just copy what they do and do it until you get their numbers." Made it a company that's easy to dislike, even when not being bombarded by requests on FB.
I ran across this Ben Kuchera article and I'm just curious: Did you see this coming?
