Posted Aug 5, 2012

Apple is currently in talks to acquire social network Fancy according to BusinessInsider.  The Fancy is a rival to Pinterest and users are encouraged to “fancy” products like clothes and places.  Sometimes the products that are displayed on the website have discounts, making the website an e-commerce platform.  Apple CEO Tim Cook is a verified user of Fancy and he recently had a meeting with the creator of the service, Joe Einhorn, at a recent conference in Sun Valley.  The Fancy is based in New York and has 20 employees.
