Facebook acquires DEMO startup ShareGrove | VentureBeat

Hmm… (via Richard Eckel)

Facebook has acquired ShareGrove, a small startup focused on creating private spaces for close friends and family to share content.

The San Mateo, Calif.-based company, which debuted at the DEMO conference last fall, offered a private real-time space where a small group of friends or colleagues could interact. It used Facebook Connect to build an area that was like a hybrid between email, a Facebook wall, and group chat. In some ways, it resembled FriendFeed, a startup founded by high-profile Googlers Paul Buchheit and Bret Taylor, which Facebook acquired last year.
