In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman discusses why he thinks a few problems may arise in the future for Zynga's (NASDAQ:ZNGA) new CEO, Don Mattrick, and the company's founder and former CEO, Mark Pincus. Pincus started Zynga from scratch and built it to the company that it currently is, and although he's now passing the reins to the next guy, he will still be the chief product officer and chairman of the board and will control 61% of the voting rights. While time will tell whether Pincus can fully relinquish control of his company to another guy, shareholders will be along for the ride, and it's not one Matt wants to be on.
