While the world watches the market debut of Facebook (FB), one of its big partners is suffering.
Trading in shares of Zynga (ZNGA) were halted during morning trading after a 13% drop. The shares rebounded when trading resumed and rebounded before a second freeze. This afternoon, they're trading again near the day's lows.
The social-game company makes many of the most-popular games on Facebook, including "Farmville," tying its fortunes closely to the giant.
Zynga shares hit the market late last year near $11 each; they were trading at $7.80 when trading was halted the second time.
