Google koopt Meetro, een lokatie-gebaseerde vriendenvinder.
“The beauty of Meetro is the direct way in which you connect with people nearby,” Paul Bragiel, CEO of Meetroduction, said in a statement about the software release. “Just run Meetro, double-click on a person and begin chatting immediately. It’s all real-time, which means you see and communicate with local people who are online right now.”
The software is compatible with AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and ICQ, adding the ability to find people outside of one’s personal buddy lists. Before the acquisition, the company planned to eventually support MSN Messenger and Jabber as well.
