Google Acquired Social Technology Company, Slide

Google announced recently that it has acquired Slide, a social technology company that develops social apps.
A source said that Google paid $228 million for Slide.

For Google, the 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.

According to Google, as the Slide team joins the search giant, they’ll be investing even more to make Google services socially aware and expand the capabilities for the users across the web.

There’s no detailed product plans to share right now, but that’s pretty obvious that Google is planning to launch a social service to compete with Facebook. What do you think?
