Zynga Games Seeing Spikes in This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by DAU

We’re seeing spikes in daily active users across numerous Zynga games this week on our list of fastest-growing games by DAU.

This isn’t terribly shocking, given that Zynga’s IPO is in full swing. Already, there are reports that Zynga has received enough offers to cover all 100 million shares offered. Also, earlier this week, Zynga’s Words With Friends got some tangential attention from a scandal involving actor Alec Baldwin, who was put off a flight for allegedly playing the game on his cell phone during the portion of the journey where passengers are asked to switch off cell phones.
