Google Wanted To Buy Path For $100 Million

Posted Feb 2, 2011

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) wanted to buy mobile social network Path. I wrote about Path raising over $8 million in funding early today. Apparently Path decided to reject Google’s $100 million offer. Google liked the Path team and their design skills. Google also appreciated that Morin was heavily involved in the operations at Facebook. “They hoped it might help Google recruit more Facebook employees over time.” Morin said that he sees Path as a 30-year brand so selling to Google would be too premature.
