Should I say asset? Would it bring Google additional income?
Either or, Jaiku users does not care. I think Jaiku is the same with Twitter. It is like blogging as well wherein you just post one single line or sentence of what you are doing currently. Like others would call it, micro-blogging.
Jaiku is an activity stream and presence sharing service that works from the Web and mobile phones. Jaiku, Ltd. was founded in February, 2006 by Jyri Engeström and Petteri Koponen from Finland. The service was released on the Web in July 2006. Jaiku is based in Helsinki.In comparison, Twitter is crowed-favorite, but since Google owns Jaiku then maybe Jaiku will beat Twitter.
Anyway, it shows us that that's another way to earn in the internet. So for those who knows how to make one like these geek guys then do it and then make it big then sell it, you'll be millionaires in the future.
