Former Zynga general manager Jeremy Verba has left the company to become chief executive officer of dating site eHarmony after working at the social gaming company for 19 months, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Is social gaming upstart Zynga really worth more than traditional video game giant Electronic Arts?
Zynga, the hot social gaming company that may be worth $4.5 billion, has had some big swings in traffic for its games. And it’s enough to make the Zynga folks feel like they’re on a roller coaster.
Zynga‘s newest game, Treasure Isle, has quickly grown to 4.3 million users since the company announced the game a week ago. It’s a clone of another game in a genre borrowed from casual game web sites (zSlide’s Treasure Madness). But it looks like it will do the job of stopping a slide in users at Zynga.
