Kick off each Monday with the best news and ideas in social media.
Jaiku Bought By Google
We’re joining Google from the Jaiku team shows their excitement for the news.

If you are a Jaiku user already, you may want to read the Google FAQ they posted today.
Google said they “plan to use the ideas and technology behind Jaiku to make compelling and useful products.”
Lots of people are asking, why didn’t Google buy Twitter instead?
