Application : Si vous voulez que vos messages disparaissent, vous devrez les supprimer vous-mêmes. C'est la décision finalement adoptée par Google avec son appli Allo, qui assure que celle-ci gagne ainsi en pertinence. Mais votre vie privée est la contrepartie.

Google Acquires Facebook Marketing Startup Toro | Social Media | Acquisitions

Google Acquires Facebook Marketing Startup Toro | Social Media | Acquisitions | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Toro, a startup that helps developers promote their apps on Facebook, just announced that it’s been acquired by Google.

The company was originally known as Red Hot Labs, and it’s led by Amitt Mahajan and Joel Poloney. They previously co-founded MyMiniLife, which played a key role in the creation of FarmVille (and was acquired by Zynga).

Mahajan and Poloney told me last fall that the company’s aim was to make launching and optimizing a Facebook ad campaign as easy as possible for mobile app developers, by automatically creating and testing “hundreds of variants” for each campaign.

In its announcement, Toro writes that joining Google will give team members access to more resources and distribution, allowing them to “continue our mission of making the lives of app developers easier.”

Today, Twitter announced that it was giving Google access to its firehose of data in order to make finding all those tweets. First reported by Bloomberg yesterday, tweets will start showing up in Google search results as soon as they are posted to the social network.

Google Acquires Emu, An IM Client With Siri-Like Intelligence

Google Acquires Emu, An IM Client With Siri-Like Intelligence | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Google has acquired Emu, a new mobile messaging application that just exited beta earlier this year. Emu was at heart an IM client, but it differentiated itself from the crowded market with smart features that incorporated a virtual assistant not unlike Siri to automate tasks based on your conversations – meaning you could do things like schedule appointments to your calendar, set reminders and even make reservations at a restaurant directly from your conversations.

Google rachète mDialog, spécialisée dans la pub vidéo | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

En s'offrant la start-up mDialog, Google renforcera l'offre de sa régie DoubleClick et permettra aux groupes médias de diffuser de la publicité en vidéo sur différents types de terminaux.


Google n'en finit plus de multiplier les rachats. Après avoir investi dans l'imagerie par satellite en s'offrant Titan Aerospace, puis Skybox Imaging, la firme de Mountain View a décidé de se recentrer sur son coeur de métier, à savoir la publicité.  Le californien vient en effet de confirmer l'acquisition de mDialog, une startup spécialisée dans la publicité vidéo, pour un montant non communiqué.


La technologie de mDialog permettra à Google de proposer davantage d'options de vidéos haute définition à ses annonceurs. L'entreprise compte sur la technologie et l'expertise des équipes de mDialog pour renforcer l'offre de sa régie DoubleClick autour du format vidéo. Elle a précisé qu'il n'y aurait pas de changement dans l'immédiat pour les clients de la jeune pousse
