Thanks to my friend Laura, I got an update about this whole Zynga fiasco.
Here’s a link to the article explaining it all:
So it looks like there was confusion among some people about the two different campaigns. I’m not sure where that confusion came from since I saw that there were two campaigns when I read the articles yesterday. To me, the fact that they only sent 50% of the proceeds in the first campaign was shady enough on its own.
I still think Zynga is shady. I’ll post the articles I’ve found about them when I have time, but it isn’t my top priority. I’m not asking any readers to stop playing their Zynga games. I have my own reasons for stopping. My opinion of Zynga being shady is just part of it. The fact that the games are a huge time suck are another reason.
So enjoy your games and just make sure to read the fine print if you buy anything from these apps.
It’s just my opinion, after all.
