This could be very related to the speculations regarding Google setting up its own social networking site to compete with Facebook. Zynga is at the very least partly responsible for Facebook's sucess.
Imagine if Google's social netowrk has a btter social gaming platform than Facebook. Then imagine if Google gets games like Farmville pulled from Facebook and are only offered on Google's site instead. Think Facebook would be feeling the heat then?
Normally I laugh at Google's investments but this one could turn out to be the turning point in the social war. I didn't give Google much of a chance but it will have Facebook beat both in bandwidth and now possible games. If the site looks good, functions well, and gives users the illusion of privacy there's a chance Google could win this.
