Yahoo! is now a new entry portal to Zynga’s games. The Internet portal has also announced that they have integrated Twitter.
Yahoo! has made a few announcements about services to be added this week, with one being that they will integrate Zynga’s games into their portal. Zynga are owners of numerous games available on MySpace and Facebook, including MafiaWars and FishVille. On Facebook, MafiaWars has 23 million users, while FishVille has 6 million.
These two games are two examples cited by Yahoo! when announcing the addition of Zynga releases to their Yahoo! Games, My Yahoo!, Yahoo! Toolbar, Yahoo! Pulse and Yahoo! Messenger. At the beginning of the week, Microsoft also announced that board and other occasional games would be integrated into Windows Live Messenger 2011.
Yahoo! also used the occasion to remind users that Twitter would be integrated so that users can see and share Twitter updates directly from Yahoo!’s welcome page or from Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger and Yahoo! Pulse.
For the new beta version of Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! has indicated that it will be possible to play Zynga games along with those created by other editors like ELEX and OMGPOP, while sharing these through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Yahoo! Pulse. Facebook chat has also been integrated.
