Facebook Buys Push Pop Press

Push Pop Press, the San Francisco digital media production house behind the acclaimed iPad version of Al Gore’s climate change primer Our Choice, said today on its website that it has been acquired by Facebook. “Although Facebook isn’t planning to start publishing digital books, the ideas and technology behind Push Pop Press will be integrated with Facebook, giving people even richer ways to share their stories,” co-founders Mike Matas and Kimon Tsinteris explained in the post. The startup said that its publishing platform, which had been in private beta testing, will be shut down, and that future profits from sales of Our Choice will be donated to The Climate Reality Project.
