    LOL his tears only makes me laugh harder.
    Gee I wonder WHY this suddenly happened, it totally can't be because he lays off workers after they make a game for him, or steal source codes from other games and edits them slightly then slaps a new name on it. Nope! Not Mark! Look at what you people made him do! He's crying because of you heartless bastards.

    Apparently karma hit him hard and now he's trying to gain his losses back after facebook changed it's policy on how games (wait, Zynga makes games?) are searched and displayed and got rid of all of those fake "likes" boosting Zynga up.

    "Mark's challenge is how to make great games when his assets—his developers—are literally walking out the door,"

    "People couldn't articulate what the main strategy was, or why they were coming into Zynga on a day-to-day basis," said Mr. Liu, who added that he was "almost yelling" at Mr. Pincus at the meeting. The CEO nodded and agreed, Mr. Liu said.

    "Employee departures became rote. Zynga lost its chief creative officer, chief technology officer of infrastructure and a senior director of engineering, among others, all within three months."
