Strands acquires Expensr

Strands, which to-date has provided musical recommendations for listeners based on their prior behavior, has announced the acquisition of Expensr, a service for managing personal finance. Expensr will be relaunched as moneyStrands, Strands’ first foray into recommendation solutions for personal finance.

Currently in private beta testing, moneyStrands is an online money management solution that allows users to aggregate their online financial information in one place, providing them with an instant snapshot of all their finances. With moneyStrands, users can anonymously compare themselves to others with similar traits, such as demographics.
