Facebook now buys 'friendly stalking' app Glancee
London, May 8 (ANI): Facebook has made yet another move into the mobile app sphere by acquiring the social location application Glancee a few months after the firm purchased photo-sharing app Instagram for a billion dollars.
Glancee, dubbed as 'friendly stalking' application, quietly tracks users' locations and suggests people nearby who have similar interests by comparing their profiles on Twitter and Facebook.
Facebook has acquired ownership of all of Glancee's technology and its staff for an undisclosed sum, The Daily Mail reports.
According to the paper, the latest acquisition is an indication that Facebook is keen to beef up its expertise in mobile technology.
Both apps - Instagram and Glancee-are focused on phones and tablets, rather than desktop PCs.
In a statement, Facebook said it was 'thrilled' to acquire Glancee. (ANI)
