Yahoo Acquires MessageMe

Yahoo has acquired mobile messaging application MessageMe.

“The MessageMe application will be shutting down, allowing us to focus on helping build the best mobile communications products for Yahoo users”, MessageMe Team said.

According to Techcrunch “MessageMe raised $10 million in Series A funding early in 2013, in a round led by ex-Mozilla CEO John Lilly of Greylock Partners. Other investors in the startup include a number of high-profile VCs, including True Ventures, First Round Capital, Google Ventures, SVAngel,, Andreessen Horowitz, and Social+Capital Partnership, and other angels – many of whom also financed a prior $1.9 million seed round in March 2013”.

MessageMe is a mobile messenger application enabling users to personalize their messages and connect with others.
