Path’s social apps get bought to the corporate behind KakaoTalk
Keep in mind Path, the social community for maintaining in contact together with your closest family and friends? Until you reside in Indonesia, in all probability not. And that is a part of the rationale why it ended promoting its social networking apps to Daum Kakao, the Korean father or mother firm of the messaging app KakaoTalk. Path was based 5 years in the past with a extra intimate and nicely-designed tackle social networking, and it snagged 10 million customers in that point. However apart from some preliminary pickup in tech facilities like San Francisco and New York Metropolis, most of its progress ended up being in Latin America and Southeast Asia (greater than half of its customers are based mostly in Indonesia). Particularly, Daum Kakao is choosing up the core Path app and Path Speak, a standalone chat app it launched final yr. Path the corporate will stay on with its animated GIF app Kong, and it probably has another tasks within the works too.
