Its really gonna be hard for other sites to make a "new" Facebook. Seeing even such a big company like Google have to shut down a site they created is shocking. One of the biggest companies in the world cant beat Facebook. I've personally never used Orkut, but to me it similar layout as Facebook. I think that Google+ is also going to shut down soon. I don't know anyone who uses it everyone only uses it for there g mail account.

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.

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
