Google has taken another step to strengthen its presence in the field of social networking by acquiring a start-up firm, Angstro.
According to the Associated Press, Angstro specialises in developing applications for social media integration.
“While our work here may be done, the struggle for open, interoperable social networks is still only just beginning, and I’m looking forward to working on that in my new role at Google.” wrote Rohit Khare, co-founder of Angstro in his official blog to announce the acquisition.
According to Khare, his application helps the company share a relevant piece of news among colleagues and clients from other social networking sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
Other useful products include an app to find new pictures on Facebook, an enhanced caller ID with the help of profiles on Linkedin among others.
Mountain View, California-based Google Inc. has confirmed the acquisition but financial details have not been revealed by either side.
