After Angstro, Google now acquires Social Deck to strengthen their network. The online games social networking site Social Deck has formerly announced its acquisition by Google at an undisclosed amount.
NEW YORK: Internet search giant Google has acquired social games website SocialDeck for an undisclosed amount, in a move to strengthen its social networking service.
The transaction comes within days of Google’s acquisition of Angstro, which makes applications to discover new photos on Facebook and create a real-time social address book.
Going by reports, the deal is one of several acquisitions in the past month through which Google is hoping to build a social-networking service to counter rival Facebook.
SocialDeck has announced on its website that it has been acquired by Google.
“SocialDeck has been acquired and we have joined the Google team. We started this company with the goal of connecting friends through social games on all kinds of exciting new mobile devices,” the company stated on its website.
SocialDeck, a Canadian start-up, has launched several games titles for Facebook, Apple’s iPhone and Research In Motion’s BlackBerry devices.
The firm’s games platform technology enables simultaneous game play across multiple mobile devices and social networks.
Earlier in the month, Google had bought social widgets maker Slide Inc in a deal that would give the search giant a team of developers with vast experience in social networking.
Social networking sites such as Facebook have reached every corner of the world. More and more people are becoming members of these sites and engaging themselves in social networking. Let us discuss if this is good or bad for all of us.
Nothing in this world can be completely safe and without any negative effects. Social networking is no exception.
In today’s web-dominated world, it is surprising to see how social networking sites have managed to change habits of people across the globe, who are not reluctant any more to share some words with complete strangers or develop new relationships in no time.
Let us now move to the topic of our blog to find an amicable solution.
There is nothing wrong with social networking sites as long as they do not intervene in personal and professional lives. But, this is not the case. In many countries of the world, they have reduced employees’ time on the work seat to a considerable level. Personal relationships have also taken a backseat such is the power of social networking today.
However, things are as perceived. Many people have gained all and lost nothing by using social networking. It is important to note that making use of social sites should not be habitual but purposeful. Things start going the wrong way when habits ride over the purpose.
If used in the right sense, social networking can reduce the gap between nations and their citizens to a considerable extent. Business owners can explore new markets, customers, and what not. Customers can get the feel of market and the best places to buy besides getting lucrative purchase deals. Economy can gain from these gains and this will also result in distribution of gains to all of us over a period of time.
The underlying point is – let the better sense prevail when you switch on the PC to visit a social networking site.
If one has a close look at some of the most popular social networking sites such as Facebook, Orkut, Twitter, Propeller, and MySpace, it can be easily ascertained that they have been able to evoke and sustain great interest than any other site. The fact that approximately 18.5 billion people, out of which 9.6 billion are youth members, are using these sites for promoting personal and commercial interests besides finding people of similar interests is more than enough for every member of the Youth Brigade to join and reap benefits of social networking.
Social networking is not just about making friends or finding a love interest, but also about promoting existing skills and acquiring new skills through sharing of knowledge. In addition to that, it is a great platform to promote specialized skills and services apart from promoting an entity’s visibility and products.
In short, social networking sites are able to serve multiple purposes that are just unthinkable by others. The fact that most of these services are for free or for a very nominal price makes these sites instant hits with individuals and business striving to make a distinctive niche in the world of promotion and marketing. To conclude, it can be easily said that youth and social networking are made for each other.
In today’s times, the role of social networking has changed to a great extent than what it was till a few years ago. This is mainly because social networking sites have emerged as forms of online communities during the popular years of social web.
The purposes of a social network may vary from one individual to another. While they must be merely concerned with having fun with friends for some, they may also mean finding friends and communicating ideologies to the world at large with just a few clicks for many others. Whatever may be the reason, the use of a social network in today’s times is mainly for the purpose of inciting users to leave traces about their online presence in one form or the other.
By telling a few things about himself and his present state of work or mind can allow other users to form an image of their counterpart on other side of the PC. In these times of spatial distances, having this kind of passive interactions with long-lost friends, relatives, colleagues, and even unknown people seems to be kind of a blessing in the otherwise self-obsessed world of today.
One of the benefits of creating and maintaining an online presence with networking sites is the easy and effective complementing of varying services on the web, which can be used by any one from any part of the world to create and share descriptions of certain presence aspects, even via mobile. In short, the concept of maintaining an effective online presence in social networks is going great guns and if you are not a part of these networks, you are surely missing many interesting things before you.
