Google acquires Slide for $182 millions and promises to make web more social

[ad#Google Adsense 5]
Google has declared in its official blog that it has acquired Slide by coughing out $182 million and it is also paying an extra of $46 million to retain the employees of Slide.[ad#Infolinks]

Slide is a social technology company which connects people online.Google says that it wants to “build a more social web” and wants to expand its services socially and we can expect some web apps which will be ready to take on Facebook.

Google is yet to declare a detailed plan.I hope everything goes fine!

    I hope it is not another failure for Google but it seems we can enjoy socializing more after the acquirement.

    Buzz, Orkut, Slide,.. what is it that Google is planning. Why dont they just go out and buy the Facebook it self. End of competition.

    So many social sites that we are already inundated with and here comes Mr G to further complicate things. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mr G but sometimes I just think that they want to “grab” as much as they possibly can to maintain their dominant presence on the web. This is probably an attempt to cool off FaceBook and I can see why they are committed to it. Anyway, we’ll see how it goes. Pity I did not own “Slide”, lol
