"Google is continuing to forge ahead with its move into social gaming, and today made a new acquisition towards that goal. TechCrunch reports that Google has made an agreement to buy the social gaming company Slide for $182 million, to be formally announced tomorrow. It is unknown whether Slide founder Max Levchin will be joining Google or exiting with the money.
Slide is responsible for applications like SuperPoke!, SuperPoke! Pets, Top Fish, SuperPocus Academy of Magic, and the Facebook application FunSpace. Including Google's deal with Farmville creator Zynga, the company has spent around $300 million so far investing it its social gaming plan. Google has deep pockets, and sources claim this isn't the last move the company plans to make. We have to wonder just how much more the it will be investing to go head-to-head with the social media juggernaut that is Facebook."


Google makes yet another huge investment. I swear they're going to own the internet one day.

If Google kept its acquisition campaign so fast then very soon there will be a day it will overpower every IT company and then there will no competition for it .

I already think they are in theory, but the owners will become much richer soon?
