Facebook has acquired the team behind Lightbox, a firm that makes an Android app for photo sharing.
The move comes hot on the heels of the recent Facebook purchase of imaging platform Instagram, which was signed off by Mark Zuckerberg at a cool $1bn.
For now Lightbox has closed its doors and will not be accepting new users. Existing users have until 15 June to use the service as is, and have been given an option to download their photos in the meantime.
However, Lightbox was keen to point out that Facebook has not purchased the company as a whole. Existing data will not be transferred to Facebook, and Lightbox said that it plans to open source some of its original code.
Facebook has instead taken on the whole Lightbox staff, perhaps in a talent grab to support software development for Android devices and those running HTML5.
"We started Lightbox because we were excited about creating new services built primarily for mobile, especially for the Android and HTML5 platforms, and we're honoured that millions of you have downloaded the Lightbox Photos app and shared your experiences with the Lightbox community," said founders Thai Tran and Nilesh Patel.
"Today, we're happy to announce that the Lightbox team is joining Facebook, where we'll have the opportunity to build amazing products for Facebook's 500-plus million mobile users."
Anyone that likes Lightbox but is not keen on Facebook can turn to the Github repository, where Lightbox will publish parts of its source code.
