Facebook acquires Parakey
Facebook is a social website that has been becoming incredibly popular lately, and it appears that they have no intention in slowing down seeing as they just bought Parakey. What exactly is Parakey?
For the last two years Parakey has been developing a platform that will synchronize your documents and files across web and desktop applications. Ross spoke to IEEE Spectrum last November describing the service as a “Web operating system.”
With the two platforms integrated, not only will you have a great social network but also the ability to show and synchronize files almost effortlessly between computers and to the contacts that you’d like to share the files with.
If this works as well as they claim it does, Facebook could very well become the Flickr for file synchronization.
