Storylane is joining Facebook

Facebook has just acquired Storylane, a relatively young social network focused around telling stories, for an undisclosed sum. But this acquisition is only those of the team behind the newly community story sharing service Storylane, and not the product itself!

storylane-joins-facebookStorylane founder Jonathan Gheller posted the news to the site on last Friday, assuring Storylane members that Facebook isn’t buying any of the site’s user-generated content. The company is only buying TALENT:
This is an exciting opportunity. Facebook’s mission of connecting the world has always been at the center of our work, and like our friends at Facebook, meaningful connections are what our team is most passionate about.
The beautiful stories you have decided to share with us are yours to keep and share in however way you want. We are building tools that will help you migrate the content to other services if you so desire. I will be in touch with you about those specific tools later, but I can confirm that Facebook is not acquiring any of your data; and we’re working to make sure you can migrate your content in a manageable way.”

News of this comes the day after Facebook unveiled its new News Feed, which Facebook says was redesigned to focus on the content to build the product into a “personalized newspaper” for each user. It sounds like the Storylane Team will bring its experience to help users build some of that content.

Storylane is no longer accepting new registrations, and Gheller says the team is working on ways for users to migrate their content to other services. He also made a point to tell users that Facebook is not acquiring any of their data.
