Zynga and Yahoo announce partnership deal
Per the press release , this partnership will allow players to do the following:
Recently, the company announced a 5-year deal with Facebook and another with Twitter, but Zynga has also been aggressively working to expand its reach beyond the confines of these social networks. There are also rumors that Zynga will soon be launching its own portal for its games called Zynga Live or Zlive, and we suspect FarmVille will be showing up on other web portals before the summer's end.
- Ability for people to play Zynga games and access their personal Zynga game updates across Yahoo!'s properties including the Homepage, Yahoo! Games, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger and others.
- Sharing of updates across multiple social experiences simultaneously while playing their favorite Zynga games on Yahoo!
- Product integration of Zynga games with the Yahoo! Application Platform (YAP), Yahoo!'s OpenSocial container through which third-party developers can develop applications on Yahoo!
