  • Like Too Many MLMers, Zynga Gets Zinged

    In a blog post, Paying For Virtual Pigs, published on January 5th, I wrote that Zynga’s online game FarmVille, where users run a virtual farming business, very closely resembles many badly constructed MLM companies. 

    Well, Zynga is in the news again and the news is very bad. And once again the parallel to bad MLM is clear.

    Here are the highlights:

    • Zynga users are ditching the company — and the stock is getting killed as a result.
    • Daily activity on Zynga’s social games fell 8.2% in May, following a 12% decline in April.
    • Zynga shares fell more than 10% Tuesday, June 12th, to close at $4.98, while just three months ago, shares were at nearly $14.

     Zynga’s games are free to play, but Zynga makes money when users plunk down real dollars to buy in-game items, such as farming equipment.  That’s not real farming equipment, that’s virtual, online, visualized, make-believe farming equipment.

     As I wrote before, the parallel is clear: there are REAL businesses and VIRTUAL businesses. The tragedy is that too many “business” owners can’t tell the difference, online or off, in the conventional world as well as the home-based one. Too many innocent and uniformed people are paying REAL money for VIRTUAL pigs, in FarmVille and in too many bad MLM companies.

     Looking for a home-based business? Look before you leap into a pile, virtual or real, of MLM manure.
