“For those of you that use the Moves app — the Moves experience will continue to operate as a standalone app, and there are no plans to change that or co- mingle data with Facebook.”

The amount of money involved in the deal hasn’t yet been revealed. This is the latest in Facebook’s several acquisitions, with the notable being  Facebook’s 19 billion dollars acquisition of Whatsapp and also Facebook’s 2 Billion dollars acquisition of Virtual Reality pioneer, Oculus.
