Zynga Is Undergoing A Major Upheaval, And Its COO Appears To Be The First Casualty

Zynga’s chief operating officer John Schappert has left the company and vacated his board seat.

Now Zynga faces a new challenge: finding a business beyond Facebook games, at which Schappert was a master of producing.
