Google Buys Foothold In Korea With Acquisition Of Blog Platform TNC(September 12, 2008 TechCrunch)

Google has acquired TNC (Tatter and Company), a Korean blog platform company that compares itself to Automattic , the team behind WordPress. Although Google already owns its own blogging platform, Blogger, it is not particularly popular in Korea. (According to comScore, Blogger had 1.7 million unique Korean visitors in July). The acquisition is clearly a geographic expansion move for Google, but its Textcube blogging platform also has some social networking features which Google might want to export to Blogger or other products.

Google seems not to have succeeded in Japan and South Korea compared with the Europe and America region.

It is because people in Japan and South Korea tend to like WEB portal more than the contents retrieval.

It might be important to enhance the WEB portal so that Google may succeed in Asia.

Does this purchase become the foothold?

Interesting!
