Pieceable Software has announced that their team is joining Facebook.
The social networking giant is not acquiring the company or its products.
Pieceable Software would offer their services till the end of the year. In the meantime they aim to open source most of their products and services so that they can survive on their own.
The company said in a statement:
We will be winding down the Pieceable service at the end of the year so we can focus on the new challenges and opportunities at Facebook. Facebook is not acquiring the company, technology, or customer data. We know many of you have come to rely on the Pieceable service, and we want to make sure that you can continue to do so even after we shut down our hosted service on December 31, 2012. In a few months, we’ll be releasing an open source version of Pieceable Viewer that you’ll be able to run on your own Mac hardware – we’ll have more details on that soon.
