NEW YORK (AP) - Zynga is starting to show ads from Facebook on, its stand-alone website that lets people play its online games away from Facebook.

Since players use their Facebook accounts to log in to, the ads will be targeted to them based the information that they already share on Facebook.

Facebook says advertisers won't have any new criteria to target people. So logging in to would probably get users the same ads they already see on Facebook.

The move is likely the first step in the creation of an advertising network for Facebook that allows it to show ads on websites beyond This is something other companies, such as Inc.'s, already do.

The companies are not disclosing financial details of the deal.
