Facebook to purchase ocean acidification news stream

Believe it or not, Facebook is considering purchasing numerous scientific information outlets, including the ocean acidification news stream. A internal source indicates that Facebook is tiring of making only traditional acquisitions of promising start-ups, such as the recent purchase of the mobile messaging service “WhatsApp” for $19 billion.

It appears that Facebook’s plan involves purchasing already popular science information outlets and transitioning them to reach millions instead of thousands. Information outlets that Facebook may purchase include the award-winning Real Climate (www.realclimate.org) and the ocean acidification news stream, among many others. Very recently, Facebook representatives contacted the news stream coordinator to discuss options. Further details will be released through the news stream once negotiations are finalized.
