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.
