According to USA Today Zynga is facing a class action lawsuit because of breaches of privacy. From the article:
In a statement released by the lawsuit’s co-lead attorneys, the filing claims Zynga violated federal law and its contract with Facebook by sharing the user data of players on games such as FarmVille.
“This appears to be another example of an online company failing the American public with empty promises to respect individual privacy rights,” said Michael Aschenbrener of Edelson McGuire — a co-lead attorney for the lawsuit — in a statement.
Here’s a video clip of Mark Pincus. On stage he says, “I did every horrible thing in the book just to get revenue right away.” And then he goes on to further bury himself.
What do you think will happen? Will you disconnect from Zynga games? Do you trust Facebook?
