Wildfire + Google = Obsolete app
The news about Google acquiring social media managing platform, Wildfire, spread like – well – wildfire, across the universe of social media.
The moolah invested was $250 million. In other words, digital ice was once again sold to the Eskimo, and by that we have no racial bias against the native tribes of Inuit, ok?
It’s just an expression.
Now, why is this acquisition the end of the Wildfire application?
Because Google – the 800lbs gorilla of search engines – is known for becoming the end of the lifeline for businesses it acquires.
Not to mention, that Wildfire.com is owned by Orange, a telecom giant in Europe; how did the app survive without the generic thus far, is a mystery.
So those of you who are using the Wildfire app, better cover your digital asses and seek an alternative before doomsday comes.
