How does Zynga make money? The games are played thru a facebook account? In the reddit thread there are a few mentions of people spending money to "buy" animals for their farms in the farmville game. Are games one of the ways that facebook is expected to make a lot of money?
Yeah, you can buy "Farmville Bucks" with real money. Some items can only be bought with real money instead of using points inside the game. Personally, I think that's idiotic.
But Zynga makes most of their money through ads and grabbing your Facebook data. People are so paranoid about privacy issues, but barely read the screen explaining that Farmville will take all of your info before clicking "Accept".
