Facebook Shareholders: Keep an Eye on Zynga’s Disaster

Things continue to go from bad to worse for newly public social gaming developer Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA). The company’s preliminary quarterly projections released today were very discouraging and suggest that the worst might be yet to come.

Zynga expects a net loss somewhere between $90 million and $105 million for the third quarter that ended September 30, and its GAAP loss is predicted to be a drop of 12 cents to 14 cents per share.

Zynga’s stock price closed Thursday at $2.48 per share after dropping 12 percent.

Unfortunately, bad news for Zynga often spells bad news for Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), as the two companies are consistently tied together for revenues. However, for now at least, Facebook shares have only suffered a slight 1.2 percent dip since Zynga announced its projected losses.
