Sociable Acquired By Startups.com
Excellent WordPress social voting plugin Sociable has been acquired by Startups.com for an undisclosed sum from developer Joast de Valk.
According to a report at The Next Web, de Valk will remain on board for the mean time but will gradually relinquish development and control over to the Startups.com team.
de Valk writes on his personal blog that the decision to sell was driven by his company “OrangeValley going so well…as well as my wife being 7 months pregnant and the fact that we’ll thus have a 2nd kid soon.”
Sociable, which we currently use here at The Inquisitr (its those little voting buttons at the end of each post) has a new home on the Blogplay.com site.
