Facebook buys up “Facebook live staging” domains

While this may or may not have anything to do with the earlier Facebook-Zynga news, the company has quietly bought up several new domains. A major internet company buying up domain names may not be normally news, but when it’s Facebook and it comes on the heels of other major news surrounding the company, it becomes magnified.

On November 30th (yesterday) Facebook registered the domain names (WHOIS), (WHOIS) and (WHOIS). The domains were all registered though the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.

At the moment none of these domains lead to any site or even a place marker. So what does the social media giant have in mind for these URL’s? Only time will tell and there is really no point in speculating at this time. Does anyone have any ideas? Let us know in the comments below.
