It's been a long fall from glory for social-gaming dynamo Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA). The list of strikes against the company is long, including the its wildly overvalued purchase of competitor OMGPOP last March for the tidy sum of $180 million.

However, as Fool contributor Andrew Tonner argues in the following video, there are plenty of lessons to be learned from this tech cautionary tale in the making.
