Facebook Shuts Parse Mobile Dev Platform

Facebook shuts Parse

The social media giant Facebook has announced plans to shut down Parse, the mobile developer platform it acquired back in 2013 for $85 million. Facebook says it will slowly wind down its developer services, officially shutting everything off one year from today.

Explaining the reason behind this decision Facebook spokesman Michael Kirkland said in a statement, “Moving forward we want to dedicate more resources to high-impact products and services in areas like analytics, monetization, discovery, and authentication. And Parse just doesn’t fit into that anymore.”
