This doesn’t quite qualify as ‘Breaking-News,’ but within the last year Facebook acquired Josh Miller and his startup Branch. Media reports at the time indicated the social media giant dished out somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 million for the pair.
Miller, 23, dropped out of his senior year at Princeton University to start Branch, a ‘social conversation platform’ that enables the members of a group to anonymously discuss anything they wish. The platform apparently possessed other modes of communication as well, with anonymous mode the crowd favorite.
Since joining Facebook, Miller has overseen the development of new products for the company. Recent news hinted Facebook may have had an ulterior motive in obtaining the startup and it’s founder. Rumor has it an anonymous messaging app is in the works with Miller at the helm. Not much is known about functionality other than the ability to post and browse anonymously.
You can check out his blog here, but the lack of content would lead me to believe Facebook has him on lock.
