BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading custom social network and online community platform, SocialEngine, today announced it has sold to Room 214 a digital marketing agency. The previous owners, Alex Benzer, Charlotte Genevier and Warren Shaeffer will maintain a minority ownership position in the company.

- Deepening the relationship with its global development community
- Keeping a majority of its current development team in place and adding additional engineering resources
- Keeping its customer service team in place
- Integrating service offerings with Room 214 and onloading enterprise clients
