WeatherBug Sale to xAd
« on: November 16, 2016, 07:33:54 PM »
Since the WXForum community is a very savvy and up-to-date group of people concerning weather news, you have likely already heard in the news that WeatherBug's parent company, Earth Networks, has sold the WeatherBug brand to xAd.

For those of you who wish to know more about this, please read the official press releases put out by Earth Networks and xAd, respectively:
https://www.earthnetworks.com/blog/earth-networks-focus-high-growth-data-solutions-business-announces-sale-weatherbug-consumer-business/
http://www.xad.com/press-releases/xad-raises-42-5m-series-e-acquires-weatherbug-accelerates-location-technology-to-predict-where-consumers-will-go-next/

Until I have more official news to report concerning the transition, everything will continue to remain "business as usual" with no short term changes or major impacts to WeatherBug's products and services at this time. All official news concerning this transition will continue to be posted at our parent company website at EarthNetworks.com, as well as we will make announcements at the WeatherBug Community at backyard.weatherbug.com as we have more information to report.

For those concerned about PWS, the transition is not affecting our current PWS-related plans announced earlier, although there will likely be some minor branding changes we will announce at a later date on the WeatherBug Community.

Long term, we will likely need to rename this forum section to "Earth Networks" instead of "WeatherBug" and change my user ID to something else since I am technically no longer with "WeatherBug" but "Earth Networks". The admin team can ping me, and I will work with them to make the necessary adjustments.
