Jaiku+Google

Well, well, well….the surprise of the day for me is when I received an email announcing Jaiku had been acquired by Google. I don’t think anyone saw this coming (at least not as quickly) and the Jaiku people kept it pretty quiet. Big congrats are in order for the people at Jaiku for all their hard work and innovative service.

Jaiku is by far my favorite SoNet right now and the one I use more than any other.

From the official release:

Exciting news: Google has bought Jaiku today.

What does that mean? First and foremost, we’re of course continuing to support our existing users. So fear not: your Jaiku phone, the Web site, IM, SMS, and API will continue to work normally.

That said, new user sign-ups have been limited for the time being. The idea here is to enable our team to get right to work with Google’s engineers on delivering a new, better service to you as quickly as we can instead of spending our efforts on optimizing the current back-end. Existing users will still be able to invite their friends, and those who are not yet on Jaiku can send us a request for an invitation to join.
