San Francisco (WiredPRNews.com) – Google has reportedly purchased the website Aardvark, which enables users to ask their friends questions online. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the purchase was confirmed Thursday by the co-founder of Aardvark Damon Horowitz.
As noted by the AP, Aardvark was developed in 2007. Two of the site’s creators were previous employees of Google. The site allows users to submit questions to friends via the site, Twitter, Google Chat, or other mediums. It reportedly had over an estimated 90,000 users by the end of last year.
The purchase is reportedly part of efforts made by Google to have ownership of a higher number of services that garner the attention of users of social networking site features. The company also recently introduced Google Buzz, an email service addition with features similar to Facebook.
