TripAdvisor Buying Facebook Apps....Or Are They?

http://www.insidefacebook.com/2007/08/16/biggest-facebook-app-acquisition-yet-tripadvisor-acquires-where-ive-been-for-reported-3-million/

Having once worked there, naturally the headline that TripAdvisor was now responsible for the "Biggest Facebook app acquisition yet" caught my eye.  Rumor has it that they're buying mapping application "Where I've Been" for three million dollars.  TripAdvisor has their own similar application "Cities I've Visited".

My sources inside TA don't seem excited, however.  I quote:  "Dunno. Whatever.  Rumor.  No gossip in the halls."

I'm just sayin.  Seems very buzzworthy on the outside, and yet not even worth a mention to the troops on the inside.
