Google Adds Like.com to List of Purchases

Looks like the rumours of a week ago are true, with Google buying Like.com which was founded in 2004.  The company core business is that it indexes images based on it’s image recognition technology. It also has developed a number of smaller sites devoted to fashion and e-commerce including personalisation shopping site Covet.com. The company via one of it’s founders, on it’s website, said the sale to Google would help to ‘supersize our vision and supercharge our passion.” Indeed. It may have also super-grown their personal bank accounts in the process. Why is Google buying them? Not for the eCommerce methinks but Google has been looking at video search and image search for sometime now.
