    Mark Pincus could be all smiles if he takes his come the way of an IPO and still gets to control it.

    Just how closely were tech startups paying attention to LinkedIn's initial IPO last month? Close enough to want to replicate how the social-networking startup went public.

    Zynga was reportedly one of the companies paying close attention to the affairs of LinkedIn.

    The social-gaming company is reportedly going to make as little as 10 percent of its shares available in its planned offering.

    The San Francisco-based game-maker has yet to file for an IPO but it has been rumored to be in talks with Goldman Sachs to carry out a stock sale.
