It seems, if reports are correct, Yahoo were after the staff and not the app.

Yahoo has acquired Blink, a mobile application that allows users to share messages that self-destruct, in order to poach the talent behind it.

The app will reportedly be shut down in the coming weeks so that Blink's seven-person team can work on Yahoo's "smart communication" products.

This includes former Google employees Kevin Stephens and Michelle Norgan, who founded Meh Labs, the start-up that created Blink.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.Yahoo Acquires Blink Mobile App [bbc.co.uk]
