Zynga has redesigned its website
, no longer requiring gamers to log into the site using the Facebook credentials.
Once upon a time, Facebook and Zynga were the best of pals
, with Zynga's titles driving engagement on the big blue social network and Facebook providing a steady stream of new users to play Zynga's offerings. Last year, however, Facebook and Zynga decided to start parting ways
, and that's led us to this current situation, where Zynga is pushing its platform beyond the walls of the Facebook system.
Not completely outside, however: Zynga players can still log into Facebook on Zynga.com if they like, and as you can see on the site
, the Facebook logo and login box are still prominently displayed. But players are no longer forced to use that process to partake in Zynga's library of games.
