BlackBerry acquired community management company Scroon in May
It was revealed today that BlackBerry had acquired Scroon, a social media management company, back in May -- long before news of a BlackBerry sale hit the wire. The acquisition was said to be kept under wraps because of the "delicate media buzz" around BlackBerry at the time.
Scroon specializes in social media management and was brought on board to help further all of the BBM services that BlackBerry has to offer. The company also manages accounts for Facebook, Twitter and other big-name companies.
No word of just what role Scroon will have going forward, but it hopefully we'll see some added value in BBM as things move along. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
