About-Face for Facebook (Game)
We are happy to report that Zynga, the creator of the phenomenally popular Facebook crime game Mafia Wars, has nixed the pit bull as a fighting tool. Countless social gamers stopped plowing their FarmVille fields long enough to voice their objections to Zynga about the game’s negative depiction of this most used-and-abused breed, and the company quickly responded in just the right way.
We’ll be sending Zynga a thank-you note and a box of vegan chocolates as a token of our appreciation, and Mafia Wars “maniacs” can voice their approval to Zynga’s customer service center.
