Facebook acquires Friendfeed

Just read on 901am today that Facebook has acquired Friendfeed. The details of the transaction haven’t been given or how much the acquisition is for. The synergies for Facebook are very good and it help attract a few more users (not that they don’t have many!).

This is also a good move for Friendfeed, which has always been in the shadow of Twitter. Currently Friendfeed continue to function independently. There still isn’t a timeline on when Friendfeed will get “incorporated” into Facebook, so it is still a wait and watch.

For more information, check out the Friendfeed blog post and the Facebook press release.

If you’re on Friendfeed add @ajaydsouza. And have you become a fan of Techtites on Facebook?
