Facebook Acquires  Location-Based App Glancee

After buying Instagram and Tagtile, Facebook has acquired the company that created Glancee, a location-based application that allows people to discover others around them with similar likes and tastes.

 

On Glancee´s web page, the San Francisco-based start-up says that it is very excited about the acquisition, and that  it has joined the team in Menlo Park to build great products for the 900 million Facebook users

 

The move is clearly good for Facebook since the app helps users to widen their circle of friends.  It also confirms the American giant social network´s commitment to mobile technology, and there is talk that Facebook is going to launch its own intelligent mobile phone.
