Facebook update causing problems for PetVille (and others)?
PetVille, the new pet simulation game from Zynga, also looks like it may have been affected by the Facebook updates -- we just logged in to the game, only to be greeted with an error message that says "We have noticed connection issues with Facebook that will cause loading problems and inconsistency with your Neighbor list. We expect to be back to normal soon. Thanks for bearing with us."
Maybe this problem will only be short-lived, but it also shows just how reliant companies like Zynga and, frankly, much of the Web, has become on Facebook and a small change on the social network can cause a lot of disruption for business and for consumers. Which makes you wonder: is Facebook really a stable enough to host all of our favorite games?
