Global freelancing platform Fiverr announced today that it is expanding its network. The company is acquiring online freelancing platform start-up AND CO.

Brent Messenger, Global Head of Community at Fiverr, explains how the acquisition will help Fiverr's global "community of doers." Messenger says the two companies will operate separately for the time being.

Messenger also addresses critics of some of Fiverr's subway ads, which some people claimed promoted unhealthy lifestyles. Messenger says that the goal of the ad campaign was to highlight the variety of types of people who make successful entrepreneurs and freelancers.
