Facebook acquires mobile analytics company Onavo

Facebook has just acquired Onavo, a company that develops mobile apps. The news has been confirmed by Onavo CEO and co-founder, Guy Rosen.

In a blog post, Rosen said that Onavo is eager to support Facebook's mission to connect the world, pointing out Mark Zuckerberg's Internet.org as something that the company is also passionate about.

Onavo is a mobile-focused company, having been able to launch popular mobile apps such as Onavo Count, Onavo Extend, and Onavo Protect.

"We’re excited to join their team, and hope to play a critical role in reaching one of Internet.org’s most significant goals – using data more efficiently, so that more people around the world can connect and share," said Rosen.

Once the deal is finalized, the company's office in Tel-Aviv, Isreal, will become Facebook's new home in the country. It's worth noting that Facebook has acquired other Israeli companies in the past: Snaptu and Face.com.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
