Threadsy, a social aggregator that was pronounced dead earlier this year, is being acquired by Facebook.

Swaylo, a service run by Threadsy, revealed today that once the deal goes through, the general public will no longer have access to Swaylo's free services. Swaylo's ranking system lets people see how influential they are when they post or share information on social networks.

Facebook confirmed the acquisition to CNET but would not comment further.

"This is incredibly exciting for us," CEO Rob Goldman wrote in a blog post. "We built Swaylo because we believe Facebook and other social media services are the digital representation of our lives. There is no better opportunity to take Swaylo's vision to the next level than at Facebook."

Swaylo's SwayloPro enterprise service will continue to operate as a separate company.
