Google收购社交游戏公司Slide

TechCrunch又立功了,他们成功在几天前爆尿了Google收购Slide的传闻,而且完全正确,Google官方今天确认了收购Slide,不过Google没有透露收购价格。Google表示Slide可以帮助他们在已经有一定社会化元素的服务上再继续把社会化深入下去,比如Gmail、Google Docs、Blogger、Picasa和YouTube(注意,他们居然没提到Google Buzz),不过目前无法透露未来产品开发的细节。

根据TechCrunch得到的线报,收购价格大概在1亿8200万美元,Slide创始人Max Levchin分得3900万美元(Slide公司有其个人投资的700万美元),风投BlueRun Ventures获得2800万美元,早期投资者Scott Bannister则拿到了500万美元回报,后来的投资者基本只是拿回了当初投资那么多的钱,没多少赚头。

Slide其实以前做过桌面图片应用,还做过widget,甚至还开发过Facebook的社会化游戏,他们自己甚至都不知道自己的战略是什么,不过他们凭借自己的努力已经成为最大的Facebook社交游戏开发商之一,跟Top Friends 和 SuperPoke比肩,不过要凭借Facebook社交游戏赚钱还是比较困难。

    嗯、之前没见过哦,看到收购消息后去体验了一下,感觉很熟悉,当年玩Qzone的时候有个照片秀,跟这很像,只不过其只依附于Qzone而已,而slide依附于facebook,myspace等。(这下找到差距咯)。估计这个应用,国内那些山寨都懒得山寨了吧。我觉得slide被墙的可能性很小哦。这个应用,对国内网友没有多大的吸引力,而slide提供的第三方应用基本已经在墙外了,对国内网站的支持也不是很好。
