FarmVille-maker Zynga buys Flock social browser for reasons unknown
I'm very excited to announce that the Flock team will be joining the social gaming phenomenon, Zynga... Flock's dedication to its products and users allowed us to achieve over 10 million users around the world with two products on the Facebook top 10 list of the most popular desktop apps... Our team will help Zynga in achieving their goal of building the most fun, social games available to anyone, anytime – on any platform.
According to TechCrunch, the engineering talent within Flock has been sought after by companies like Twitter and Google, and it appears that Zynga wants a piece of that for their games. It's currently unknown as to what the Flock team's role will be within Zynga nor how much the company paid, but with CEO Mark Pincus recently calling for a "dog-activated world" we've got a hunch. Zynga has been contacted for comment, stay tuned for updates.
What do you think this acquisition will mean for both Zynga and the Flock team? What does Zynga plan to do with this buy? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
