Facebook has made quite the flurry of acquisitions lately. Last week, the social network acquired Threadsy. The word on Wednesday is that Facebook could consider purchasing Waze, developer of a well-liked, free, community-based traffic-nav app. Waze has nearly 6,200 users talking about it and the app has garnered 126,000 likes.
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.
