As per the report by The Times of India the entire LittleEye Labs team will move to Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, where they would leverage the social networking giant’s infrastructure to improve the performance of their apps.
“Little Eye Labs will join forces with Facebook to take its mobile development to the next level! This is Facebook’s first acquisition of an Indian company, and we are happy to become part of such an incredible team,” the company said in a note on their website.
