Facebook Just Acquired Branch Media For $15 Million


Branch Media, which builds conversation platforms Potluck and Branch, has been acquired by Facebook.  Proving that he’s a company man already, cofounder and CEO Josh Miller announced the news this morning on Facebook writing that the social network wants his team to emulate his company’s products on a larger scale. Mr. Miller said his crew will be creating Facebook’s Conversations group “with the goal of helping people connect with others around their interests.” He noted that the team will continue to be based in New York and Branch and Potluck will continue to operate separately outside of Facebook.  He included a “huge ‘thank you'” to his investors, which include Twitter cofounders Biz Stone and Evan Williams.
