We have some exciting news to announce.
Facebook approached Momentus a couple of months back because members of the growth and engagement team were impressed by the way we designed and built social applications. Our apps have been installed by more than 100 million people and we’ve had the opportunity of working with some great brands.
After months of discussion with Facebook and internally, we decided we wanted to join Facebook in some way. The opportunity of applying all of our learnings to a product of such scale was hard to pass up. Also important to us was being able to continue growing Momentus. The set-up we came to was that Carina, my co-founder, would lead the Momentus team in building awesome social apps, and I (Chris) would move to Facebook to help lead growth projects.
This means Momentus clients will still be able to release chart-topping social apps, and I will be able to apply everything I have learned at Momentus working at Facebook.
The science behind sharing is in its infancy. With this new opportunity, we push forward in our mission to help define how it all works.
