Love Is In The Word: Zynga’s Words With Friends’ Players Get ‘Flirty And Wordy’ With A Romantic Poll Just In Time For Valentine’s Day

Stocks in this article: ZNGA

Zynga, (NASDAQ: ZNGA), the world’s largest social game developer, today announced results from a survey showcasing Zynga’s game of love. While ‘triple word score,’ tiles and romance might not go hand-in-hand, Words With Friends’ players say differently. In just three days, more than 100,000 players were polled in game – showcasing the sheer mass of Words With Friends.

In Zynga’s favorite game of crossword combat, word warriors were surveyed in Zynga’s first poll about dating, doting and even cheating. 44% of players surveyed claimed they have gone for more than just the gold in Words With Friends, and flirted with another player in-game. Other interesting statistics include:

  • Say My [User] Name: 24% of players exchanged their Words With Friends handle instead of a phone number.
  • Words With Benefits: One out of ten players say Words With Friends has led directly to a hookup.
  • You’ve Got a HUGE…Vocabulary: 38% of players said they’d be more willing to hook up with someone if they’re good at Words With Friends
  • Single and Ready to M-I-N-G-L-E: 40% of players said they would date someone they met through the game.
  • I’m a Player and I Just Crush a Lot: 47% of players say they are crushing on someone they are playing Words With Friends with right now.
  • Have Mercy: 35% of players said they let their sweetheart win.
  • Before He Cheats: 43% of players said they have cheated on someone…in the game.

Launched in July 2009, Words With Friends combines classic and competitive word building with social gaming and provides fun and (usually) friendly competition. If you want to flirt your way to love or a triple word score, Words With Friends is available for free on iOS and Android devices, as well as Facebook.
