Social networking giant, Facebook has recently said that it was buying a start-up specializing in powering mobile applications called Parse, as part of its drive to make the social network friendlier to smartphones and tablet computers.

Though Facebook did not disclose the deal amount but online reports valued the deal at $85 million.

Facebook in a blog post said, “By making Parse a part of the Facebook platform, we want to enable developers to rapidly build apps that span mobile platforms and devices.”

San Francisco, US-based Parse provides software developers tools for building applications and handles behind-the-scenes tasks such as data storage and servers to handle services for app users regardless of which mobile devices are involved.

Ilya Sukhar, Chief Executive, Parse in a blog post said, “In just under two years, we've gone from a rough prototype to powering tens of thousands of apps for a very broad spectrum of customers.”

"Combining forces with a partner like Facebook makes a lot of sense," Sukhar added.

Facebook has made a priority of following its more than one billion members onto smartphones and tablets, which are fast becoming the preferred gadgets for connecting with the leading social network.
