Palo Alto, Calif. – Facebook has acquired Divvyshot, the provider of a group
photo-sharing service, according to an announcement on the Divvyshot website.
Financial terms of the transaction were not provided.
Founded in January 2009,
Divvyshot was part of the winter 2009 Y-Combinator program, receiving $10,000
