Zynga's post-Facebook challenge

Zynga, the online gaming company behind Farmville and Words With Friends, has reported losses of £30.6m ($48m) for the final quarter of 2012.

Compared to the same period in 2011, when it lost £278m ($435m), the results are a step in the right direction, but Zynga faces a continued struggle for survival.

The San Francisco-based company had made most of its money through Facebook, but recently severed its ties with the social network and set up its own platform.
