Facebook Hires From PayPal to Focus on Messaging

Facebook 挖角PayPal,专注通讯领域

It couldn’t be any plainer if it were in a post by Mark Zuckerberg himself: Facebook, which was built on the idea that people want to share information with dozens of friends and acquaintances, is getting serious about more private communications.

基于人们希望和好友及认识的人分享信息,马克.扎克伯格在其岗位上做的可不凡,他创立的Facebook,正越来越深入到私人通讯领域。

On Monday, the social network announced that it had hired David Marcus, the president of eBay’s PayPal division and a former entrepreneur, to lead the expansion of its messaging products — and eventually, to figure out how to make money from them.

周一,Facebook在社交网络宣布,他们已雇佣了大卫马库斯,之前是一个企业家,曾在eBay公司PayPal事业部担任总经理。大卫将负责开拓期通讯产品,并最终谋求如何从中赢利。

A few hours earlier, Facebook signaled one area of messaging that it was exploring when it accidentally published the iPhone version of a new app called Slingshot that is aimed at competing against Snapchat, the popular service that allows people to send each other disappearing messages and photos.

几小时之前,Facebook透漏,其正在开发的一个通讯项目意外发布了一个IPHONE版的新应用----Slingshot,该应用将与Snapchat展开竞争。Snapchat是一项为用户提供发送失物信息和图片的流行服务。

The latest developments come on top of Facebook’s pending acquisition of WhatsApp, the most popular stand-alone mobile messaging service, for as much as $19 billion, as well as its recent decision to split its Messenger service from the main Facebook smartphone app to speed up innovation in messaging.

最新的进展,首推Facebook拟收购最受欢迎的单机通讯服务供应商WHATSAPP,这一桩高达190亿美元的收购案至今悬而未决。同时,Facebook最近决定将通讯服务从其智能机应用主体中单列出来,以加速通讯领域的创新。

“Messaging is a core part of Facebook’s service and key to achieving our mission of making the world more open and connected,” Facebook said in its announcement about Mr. Marcus’s new role.

“通讯是Facebook服务的核心部分,是我们让世界变得更开放和更联通的关键。”Facebook在对马库斯的任命中如此评价。

In his three years at PayPal, Mr. Marcus helped turn the payment service into a business that processed $180 billion in transactions last year and accounted for 41 percent of eBay’s revenue.

Paypal的三年里,马库斯主管的支付服务在去年实现了1800亿美元的交易量,为eBay带来的利润占集团的41%。
