Yahoo! Buys Blink

In one of the few tech M&A deals that was not leaked well ahead of the transaction, Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) has bought mobile message app company Blink.

Even Blink had little to offer in detail:

Blink is now a part of Yahoo!

We’re excited to announce that as of May 13, 2014, Blink is joining Yahoo! We built Blink because we believe everyone should be free to show the same honesty and spontaneity in their online conversations as they can in person. We look forward to the possibilities that will come from bringing the Blink vision to Yahoo.

We can’t begin to express how grateful we are for your support throughout this journey. We hope you stick with us through the next chapter.

No dollar figure was offered.

Blink describes itself as a self-destruct message app.
