Facebook Acquires Lightbox Team on its Way to Photo Sharing Supremacy

Just over a month after making headlines with their $1 billion Instagram acquisition, Facebook have now made another power move towards their now obvious goal of interstellar domination photo-sharing supremacy. This time their target was the seven-person team behind the popular Android photo sharing app Lightbox. Unlike with Instagram, Facebook isn’t acquiring the company; instead they’re simply absorbing the Lightbox Team. According to their blog, Lightbox is no longer accepting sign-ups and all current users now have until June 15th to download their photos by following this link.
