Google Baromter – Jaiku Vs. Twitter. Jaiku Went Down After 15 Months

Tekedia continues our  discussion on some Google products and acquisitions.  This is necessary as the world welcomes the Google+ which is getting a good rave. Will Facebook be imperiled by Google+? No one knows but there is no denying the fact that Google is serious over that product.


In 2007, Google acquired Jaiku. Jaiku was just one year old then then. They hoped to attack Twitter.  But that was not to be because Twitter is nowhere to be matched. After all efforts to pull people to Jaiku, it killed the service fiftten months later.


Jaiku is a social networking, micro-blogging and lifestreaming service comparable to Twitter.[1] Jaiku was founded in February 2006 by Jyri Engeströmand Petteri Koponen from Finlandand launched in July of that year. It was purchased by Google on October 9, 2007. (wikipedia)


Yet Google+ is not an acquisition. It is real home grown engineering. They have a real thought about it. We will see how it does with Facebook.


Some lovers on Jaiku, still using it even after the shutdown.
