Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 28, 2012, Facebook, Inc., Facebook Ireland Limited, Zynga, Inc., Zynga Game Ireland Limited, and Zynga Luxembourg S.àr.L. entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Developer Addendum dated May 14, 2010, by and between Zynga and Facebook, as amended October 1, 2011 and April 25, 2012 (“Amendment to Addendum No. 1”). In addition, on November 28, 2012, Facebook, Inc., Facebook Ireland Limited, Zynga Inc. and Zynga Game Ireland Limited entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Developer Addendum No. 2 dated December 26, 2010, by and between Facebook and Zynga, as amended on June 12, 2012 and July 3, 2012 (“Amendment to Addendum No. 2”). These amendments to the respective addenda, which supplement and amend Facebook’s standard terms and conditions for game developers, will apply to Zynga’s use of the Facebook platform through May 13, 2015. The material terms of these amendments are summarized below.

Under the terms of Amendment to Addendum No. 1, with respect to Zynga sites, such as www.zynga.com, Zynga may elect (i) not to use Facebook Payments as a means of payment and/or (ii) not to display ads served by Facebook.

Under the terms of Amendment to Addendum No. 2, Zynga’s use of the Facebook platform with respect to Zynga sites will, subject to certain transition provisions, be governed solely by Facebook’s standard terms and conditions for game developers. In addition, Amendment to Addendum No. 2 implements a requirement that, subject to certain exceptions, Zynga must launch new social games on the Facebook site concurrent with, or shortly following, any launch on Zynga sites or third-party social platforms, and eliminates the requirement that Zynga use the Facebook platform as its primary non-Zynga platform to launch social games. Amendment to Addendum No. 2 also removes the requirement for Zynga to use the Facebook platform as the exclusive means of login with respect to games not hosted on the Facebook site.
