Zynga  (zynga.com) was founded in 2007 with the vision that ‘play’ would become one of the core activities on the Internet. Zynga pioneered social games with the belief; if we could make games simple, accessible and social the world would start playing. Zynga remains excited that games have grown to become the second most popular activity by time spent, even surpassing email. But Zynga understands they have a lot of hard work, innovation and growth ahead to create a future where social gaming is a daily habit for everyone.
