eBay Acquires E-commerce Startup, Magento

eBay announced on Monday that it has agreed to overtake Magento (an open source ecommerce platform), an LA-based company with nearly 300 employees. eBay before only had a minority stake in the company, but has since then decided to go big or go home. Neither company stated how much the deal will go for, but it is expected to close in the third quarter of this year upon approval.

Magento offers tens of thousands of merchants control over the user experience, catalog, content, and functionality of their online store. The company’s “Go” platform offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS), offering both small and growing merchants the online tools they need, from payments to inventory management.

Added Privacy To Facebook Sharing?

Facebook has now added one step of privacy to the FB application. Users can now “Send” content to specific groups on Facebook rather than everyone on their friend list. The company explained in a blog post that this will allow users to share specific content without it being seen by undesired parties. Facebook informed the community that the new Send button will be available on 50 partner website including Orbitz.

The company also announced that since its launch six months ago, users have created over 50 million groups on the platform. Facebook also mentioned a deeper integration between Facebook Questions and Facebook Groups–enabling users to ask questions to members of a particular group.
