Google Acquires Wildfire To Offer Social Media Marketing Services

Google has gotten into the social media marketing business with the acquisition of Wildfire.
The company has been around for about four years, and has managed to grow to 400 employees and 16,000 customers. Its social media brand management services have been used by companies like Virgin, Cirque du Soleil, Gilt Group and Spotify.

“The ultimate goal is better and fresher content, and more meaningful interactions,” says Google’s Jason Miller. “People today can make their voices heard in ways that were previously impossible, and Wildfire helps businesses uphold their end of the conversation (or spark a new one).”

“In a complex and changing landscape, businesses want to manage and measure these efforts in an integrated way,” he adds. “We’ve been working towards this end for some time. For example, Google Analytics helps businesses measure the contribution of hundreds of social sites; our Admeld service has helped to serve ads in Facebook developers’ social apps; and our DoubleClick platform enables clients to run and measure ads across social websites. On Google+, brands use services like Vitrue, Buddy Media and others to manage their pages, with many more to come.”
