A couple of weeks and we will advance the intent to buy Face.com Facebook, the Israeli startup face recognition, for $ 100 million. And apparently the rumors were entirely true, since from the same blog from the startup confirmed the purchase made social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg.
Thus, it is estimated that the transaction was made between the $ 80 million and $ 100 million initial amount that Facebook would have proposed to the startup. However, in none of the blogs of companies required the price for that would have finalized the purchase.
With this new move by the social network is expected to strengthen its Facial Recognition system, besides having this startup developers to make them work on improving and developing new products to Facebook. Also, another side of this purchase has to do with the name of this company to a certain extent refers to the network of Zuck and why many people call the site in this way.
Thus, the purchase of face.com becomes the second in issues related to photography and image making the network Zuck, for only in April did Instagram Facebook for $ 1,000.
