NEW YORK (AP) – Zynga is unveiling a new online gaming destination so people can play "CityVille," ''Zynga Poker" and other games off Facebook.

The availability of games at Zynga.com doesn't mean the company is divorcing Facebook, though. Players still log in with their Facebook accounts and spend money in the games through Facebook. But Zynga hopes the move will lure in more players, who will be able to play with people they are not friends with on Facebook.

Zynga Inc. also said Thursday that it wants to become a gaming platform. That means the company is letting other developers create games for Zynga.com.
