Zynga also reported a net income loss of $22.8 million, thanks i part to a $95.5 million stock-based expense.
The company reported a diluted earnings per share (EPS) loss of ($0.03) for the second quarter and a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) EPS of $0.01.
Zynga also adjusted its outlook for the rest of 2012 in order to "reflect delays in launching new games, a faster decline in existing web games due in part to a more challenging environment on the Facebook web platform, and reduced expectations for Draw Something."
The Facebook revelation is interesting, as it could indicate either increased competition on the platform or larger monetization problems on Facebook itself.
Facebook stock is also down about 6% in after-hours trades. Facebook announces its first earnings as a public company on Thursday.
