Germany's Samwer brothers make Facebook investment


Mike Arrington reported this morning that the German serial entrepreneurs Alexander, Marc, and Oliver Samwer participated in Facebook’s recent investment round to the tune of a few million dollars. The Samwers join Chinese billionaire Ling Ka-Shing and Microsoft as strategic Facebook investors.

Known for their investments in studiVZ (a German Facebook clone which they sold for 100 million Euros), LinkedIn, and Frazr (a European Twitter clone), the Samwer brothers will help Facebook navigate and expand into the European market.
