Facebook has been lauded as one of the best tech employers around, with plenty of perks for employees and a casual working environment. But one of the favorite activities of Facebook employees might surprise you: target shooting. Pictured: Justin Shaffer, formerly of Hot Potato.
Facebook’s hunger for juicy startup morsels is somewhat insatiable, gauging its recent merger-and-acquisition activity. But when it goes in for the kill, it’s typically for one reason and one reason alone: acquisition of talent, lest they become threats.
Brooklyn-based start-up Hot Potato has confirmed its acquisition by Facebook in a blog postand warned users it would soon be winding down the site. The news was expected – we’ve previously reported that the acquisition took place earlier this summer for around $10 million.
