Face.com shuts APIs, KLiK iOS app to focus on new Facebook products
| by Naina Khedekar |
Facebook has been on a shopping spree. After buying Instagram for a whopping $1 billion, the social networking site acquired Face.com last month for $60 million. Within a month of its acquisition, Face.com has shut its application programming interface (APIs) for developers along with the KLiK iOS app. The Face.com website states, "Face.com has been acquired by Facebook, and as part of this process, we need to close up existing products and services so we can focus on new products at Facebook. We're working with Face.com developers to transition as we wind down support for our APIs.”
Now part of Facebook
The KLiK app for iOS performed real-time facial recognition and could instantly identify and tag friends photos. The app would connect to Facebook and then scan your friends' photos to create facial profiles of everyone in the user's network. The app would then identify people in the pictures you take by comparing them to the facial profiles created from Facebook.
