Facebook: Acquires Moves, Launches FB Newswire

Two new interesting developments from Facebook:

  • It has acquired fitness and activity tracking app Moves for an undisclosed sum. Moves team will join FB  to “work on building and improving their products and services” and that the Moves app will continue to operate on its own as a standalone experience. Facebook really is intent on owning every data point they can. Link
  • FB has launched FB Newswire in partnership with News Corp owned Storyful. Promises to offer journalists a repository of verified, real-time content for use in covering breaking news. Hopes journos would give up Twitter for its service. Link
