RockYou Secures $17 Million in Funding

Posted Nov 3, 2008

RockYou has raised $17 million from Softbank Group and Menlo Park-based SK Telecom Ventures. This brings the company’s total funding to $67 million.

The primary use of the funding is for the company to expand into foreign markets including China.

Since the Facebook platform is practically dead, RockYou and other widget makers have to find new ways to reach an audience. Therefore, focusing on foreign markets is a good business move.
