Facebook prefers to keep things discreet, thank you very much. The social network is arguably the hottest tech company to work for right now, so it can probably demand whatever nondisclosure clauses it wants, whether it’s preliminary talks with a potential recruit with a clever Tumblr or post-hire details from Daytum’s Nicholas Felton and Ryan Case, now part of Facebook’s design team. The Daytum founders sent over this officious “FAQ” on the move.
Interesting that Facebook did not acquire the Daytum I.P., which suggests we won’t see any Daytum-esque features on the site anytime soon.
“I really don’t have much to add,” Mr. Felton demurred when Betabeat pressed for an interview. Mr. Felton does share the number of days he spends traveling, number of miles he runs and number of celebrity sightings via Daytum, although he’s not updated in a while. Via Twitter, we learn he’ll be keeping a home in New York but spending a lot of time in Palo Alto. Mr. Case’s tweets are private.
