Mark Pincus, co-founder and chief executive of Zynga, the social network gaming company most famous for creating FarmVille, says that “the web is like one big cocktail party.”
Zynga Game Network has aready reached the same levels of fame as its San Franciscan technology contemporaries Twitter and Facebook.
The company is now reportedly worth $5.5 billion just three years since launch, and has almost single-handedly revolutionised online gaming.
Mark Pincus, founder of Tribe Network, an early social network, and an early investor in both Facebook and Napster, is understandably excited about the company he co-founded in 2007 and named after his “rock star dog.”
“Since the likes of Napster, MySpace and Facebook were created, the web is a social place, with lots and lots of smaller cocktail parties happening everywhere,” Pincus said in his first major UK interview since the creation of Zynga.
“Beforehand, the web was a huge place that wasn’t connected in any way – and then Napster launched [and] the web suddenly lit up. The internet became this place where people could come together around their interests. And now I am hosting one of the biggest cocktail parties online.”
And he’s not joking about it. One of the first companies to take advantage of Facebook opening up its platform to developers in 2007, Zynga tapped into the highly lucrative market of social gaming and virtual goods three years ago.
33 million people around the world have now downloaded FarmVille, Zynga’s most popular game to date, and currently there are 60 million active players. A series of other games followed, such as CafeWorld, Mafia Wars and FrontierVille.

With Facebook down last night, many of us free of the Farmville nightmare might have missed the terror taking place behind virtual doors. This is of course about the massive collapse of the Farmville crops, with farmers unable to access their land, crops withered and cows were left un-milked.
Though of course thanks to twitter the mockage began for those who remembered those with Farmville obsession and decided to laugh. Yay for the internet humour.
