Google is acquiring Finnish social mobile microblogging service, Jaiku.
we’ve acquired Jaiku, a company
that’s been hard at work developing useful and innovative applications
for staying in touch with the people you care about most — regardless
of whether you’re at a computer or on a mobile phone.”
Jaiku has been compared to industry leader Twitter, where friends
always know what their friends are doing via mini mobile posts.
Analysts are saying that this is a yet another move by Google to be the
master of all media including IM, mobile Web and microblogging.
