  • Google’s acquisitions in social gains momentum

    Despite its problems getting traction with Buzz, Google isn’t done with social. In fact, it appears it’s just getting started.

    The company has just bought SocialDeck, a mobile game startup focused on delivering games across various platforms such as the iPhone and Blackberry.

    This is part of a series of acquisitions by Google in the social arena. It bought social search startup Angstro last week. And in the past month, it picked up app maker Slide and virtual currency firm Jambool.

    Don’t ignore what Google is doing here. They’re getting serious about social.
