Tragedy Strikes: Facebook And Farmville Make Nice

Facebook and Farmville and Mafia Wars-makers Zynga were bickering over in-game currency and the social network took a stand that hampered the game publisher’s ability to advertise through pseudo-updated on the site, causing the games to lose millions of players.

Kotaku reports all hope for a permanent, irritating games-crippling impasse has been scuttled, because Zynga has backed down and agreed to use Facebook Credits, giving the social network a juicy 30 percent cut of all money players throw away into nothingness for no reason whatsoever.

Enjoy the continued nagging from friends begging you to help them with their crops.
