Facebook has announced yet another interesting acquisition. This time they are acquiring Snaptu.

Snaptu specializes in developing mobile apps for feature phones. These apps are not as capable as the regular smartphone apps but they serve more customers based in developing markets.

Mobile is very important for Facebook and they worked in close collaboration with Snaptu to develop a Facebook mobile app for the feature phones.

This is a good acquisition for Facebook as they would be able to cater to feature phone owners with faster updates. Snaptu developers would be able to focus on a singular platform for their future applications.
