As expected, Google confirmed rumors that it has purchased social apps platform Slide.
However, the company provided no indication as for the value of the deal. TechCrunch sources gave a price tag of $182 million, while The New York Times said the deal came up to $228 million. In a blog post, engineering director, David Glazer, said Google "will be investing even more to make Google services socially aware and expand these capabilities for our users across the web." The acquisition is widely seen as a further step towards the search behemoth's social platform, believed to be called 'Google Me.'
