Facebook said Monday it has acquired friend.ly, a firm behind a Facebook social question-and-answer service.

"We're excited to announce that we recently acquired friend.ly, a startup that created a really compelling way for people to express themselves and meet others through answering questions," a spokesman said in an email to AFP.

"The friend.ly team will be focusing on new projects at Facebook, but friend.ly will continue to operate as a separate service," the Mountain View, California-based startup said in a blog.

Neither firm revealed the terms of the takeover, or when the transaction was expected to be completed.
