Facebook buys LiveRail

Congratulations to our long time client LiveRail! Today, LiveRail announced its acquisition by Facebook.

Facebook is buying video ad platform LiveRail and giving it control of a network that powers advertising for high-profile publishers—online and on mobile. LiveRail delivers video ads to websites and apps for Major League Baseball, ABC, A+E Networks and Dailymotion.

We're proud of the great work we've done with LiveRail over the past year and half, most notably placing LiveRail CEO Mark Trefgarne on Bloomberg TV as recently as last December.

And, looking at our agency's history, we're also proud of the fact that three WISE PR clients have been acquired by the "holy trinity," AdMeld (Google); Spindle (Twitter), and now LiveRail (Facebook).
