The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross. In this segment, the analysts discuss gaming company Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), whose business model has been so hotly debated ever since the hype around the company vanished when the stock crashed shortly after its IPO. The company has now announced that it has restructured its relationship with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). Initially, Zynga was completely Facebook-dependent, with players accessing its games through the social network and paying for in-game purchases with Facebook credits. Now, the company is going to be flying solo and operating independently. Can it attract the number of users it needs without Facebook?
