Glancee is a mobile-based app which generates a list to discover the locations of other Glancee users, while linking users with similar preferences and likes.
Users can then strike up an online chat after finding people with common interests.
A benefit of Glancee is that it is currently cross-platform, as opposed to Highlight – a similar app – which is exclusive to iOS.
“We are thrilled to confirm that Facebook has acquired Glancee. The acquisition closed today. We can’t wait for co-founders Andrea, Alberto, and Gabriel to join the Facebook team to work on products that help people discover new places and share them with friends,” Facebook representatives said via statement.
Facebook also recently acquired Instagram, a photo-sharing app, in a $1 billion deal.
