Yahoo Inc. has acquired Blink, a mobile messaging startup whose app allows users send messages that will self-destruct at a time set by the sender, Reuters has reported. Blink, which was launched in April 2013, said it will shut down its app for both iOS and Android platforms in coming weeks following the acquisition. Blink is a product of Meh Labs, a company founded by ex-Google employees Kevin Stephens and Michelle Norgan. Meh Labs is best known for its location-sharing app Kismet. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
