Confirmed: Comcast Bought Plaxo, Deal Closed Today

I was never a great fan of Plaxo, although I did use the service (mostly as a birthday reminder).

But Comcast, I really don’t like.  So as soon as I heard the news, I sent my last message on the Plaxo system:

plaxo

 

 

 

 

It reads, "Robert is trying to figure out how to delete his Plaxo/Comcast account".

And I did figure it out:

plaxo_deleted 

 

 

 

 

The rumors were accurate: Comcast will announce their acquisition of social contact list Plaxo today. Financial terms are not being disclosed, but the purchase price is between $150 and $170 million. Plaxo, which was founded in 2002, has raised just under $30 million in venture capital.
