The creator of Farmville, Cityville and Mafia Wars, Zynga, is now told to be ready to file for an initial public offering in the next two weeks, according to Kara Swisher at AllThingsD. Following of the IPO of business networking site LinkedIn and Russian search giant Yandex, Wall Street also expects Groupon and Facebook to do the same. [Months earlier, content farm company Demand Media and the vastly popular personalized streaming music service Pandora have recently filed to take on public financing].

Any Indonesian or Asian Web 2.0 firms are ready for IPO filing, too? I hope so.

  1. Zynga memang mantap, apa pun cemooh para hardcore gamer terhadap game-game FB. Lewat social media mereka bentuk ulang casual gaming, yang sebelum era FB dan Twitter hanya terbatas di site-site Flash gratisan dan PC. Patut dicatat bahwa Zynga satu-satunya game publisher yang SANGGUP meraih kesepakatan bisnis dengan Lady Gaga.

    Saya pernah mengikuti livetweet salah seorang desainer Mass Effect, saat dia mengikuti presentasi tentang social game development di Game Developers Conference 201.

    Semoga rangkuman tweet-tweet itu menginspirasi para game developer di Indonesia, bahwa social gaming pun bisa jadi ladang bisnis yang subur. Zynga telah membuktikan BISA! :)
