Google takes a break from acquiring social gaming-focused companies
Google has snapped up Like.com, the start-up announced Friday, as Google puts its product-shopping search strategy on the front burner.
Techcrunch, which reported a deal was in progress earlier in the week, said the official deal could be for as much as $100 million. "We were the first to bring visual search to shopping, the first to build an automated cross-matching system for clothing, and more. We see joining Google as a way to supersize our vision and supercharge our passion," said Munjal Shah, co-founder and CEO, in a statement posted on Like.com's home page.
