    According to some reports, Facebook and Zynga have altered their business arrangement to become less closely intertwined...

    According to the BBC, Facebook and Zynga have amended an agreement that gave the developer strong access to the social network's one billion users.

    If you didn't know, Zynga has its own games platform, but now players will no longer be able to share their progress on Facebook.

    As expected, Zynga's share price fell by 13%, following the news.

    As you may know, back in October 2012, Zynga founder Mark Pincus said the company would close its Boston studio and consider closing studios in the UK and Japan as part of an "overall cost reduction plan".
