1. Lightbox is joining Facebook!

    We started Lightbox because we were excited about creating new services built primarily for mobile, especially for the Android and HTML5 platforms, and we’re honored that millions of you have downloaded the Lightbox Photos app and shared your experiences with the Lightbox community.

    Today, we’re happy to announce that the Lightbox team is joining Facebook, where we’ll have the opportunity to build amazing products for Facebook’s 500+ million mobile users.

    This means we’re no longer accepting new signups. If you’re an existing user, you can continue to use Lightbox.com until June 15 and you can download your photos from here.

    Facebook is not acquiring the company or any of the user data hosted on Lightbox.com. In the coming weeks, we will be open sourcing portions of the code we’ve written for Lightbox and posting them to our Github repository.

    We’d like to thank the Lightbox community, our investors, and our families for supporting us during this journey.  We’d also like to thank Giles Peyton-Nicoll, the Creative Designer behind Lightbox, who will be staying in the UK to pursue other opportunities.

    Thai Tran & Nilesh Patel
    Co-founders, Lightbox
