(VB) Facebook snaps up the team behind content saving app Spool | VentureBeat

>>Eugene: more stuff for FB Timeline. Similar to the instagram deal, FB adds more events and pack payloads for people to discuss at different time intervals. Also exposes ones interests to advertisers.<< 

(VBeat, 7/14/12) Facebook announced this morning that it has acquired the team behind Spool, which developed an app to save content for viewing later, similar to Instapaper and Pocket.

The service was particularly unique since it could save all sorts of web content, including images and PDF files, and it also allowed you to push content easily to your friends. (That's another feature I imagine Facebook is drooling to replicate.)
