Google acquires social games website SocialDeck
Google has acquired social games website SocialDeck for an undisclosed amount, in a move to strengthen its social networking service. The transaction comes within days of Google’s acquisition of Angstro, which makes applications to discover new photos on Facebook and create a real-time social address book.
SocialDeck, a Canadian start-up, has launched several games titles for Facebook, Apple’s iPhone and Research In Motion’s BlackBerry devices.
The firm’s games platform technology enables simultaneous game play across multiple mobile devices and social networks.
