Two days abck, we reported that Google has aquired "Slide," Google now made an announcement of the acquisition. Slide is a social technology company with an extensive history of building new ways for people to connect with others across numerous platforms online.
"For Google, web is about people, and we're working to develop open, transparent and interesting (and fun!) ways to allow our users to take full advantage of how technology can bring them closer to friends and family and provide useful information just for them. Slide has already created compelling social experiences for tens of millions of people across many platforms, and we've already built strong social elements into products like Gmail, Docs, Blogger, Picasa and YouTube. As the Slide team joins Google, we'll be investing even more to make Google services socially aware and expand these capabilities for our users across the web," stated Google.
