Moves joins Facebook!
24 April 2014 Today, we're delighted to announce that Facebook has acquired our company and the Moves app. Since we launched Moves, we’ve been focused on running a simple and clean activity diary that millions of people have enjoyed using.
Now, we’re joining Facebook’s talented team to work on building and improving their products and services with a shared mission of supporting simple, efficient tools for more than a billion people.
For those of you that use the Moves app the Moves experience will continue to operate as a standalone app, and there are no plans to change that or commingle data with Facebook.
Thank you for supporting us on this journey, and we’re looking forward to our future at Facebook!
