Facebook has made yet another acquihiring. The founders of the MailRank service are joining the social networking giant.
MailRank provides technologies to sort out emails in an account on the basis of importance to the users.
Facebook is likely to use their expertise to improve their newsfeed and perhaps the email client as well.
MailRank is for now discontinuing their MailRank for Outlook beta app. the developers said in a blog posting:
We’ll be discontinuing the private beta of MailRank for Outlook to focus on our new jobs. The past year has been a wonderful journey, and we thank everyone who has helped and supported us along the way: our test users, investors, advisors, friends, and families. You have our sincerest gratitude.
