Meetro Not To Team Up With Google

from the forget-we-said-that dept

This is turning out to be a day of corrections apparently. Following the false rumors about changes to Wikipedia, now comes the news that the story InternetNews had earlier this week, which we wrote about, concerning an assumed Google acquisition of a social networking startup is also not so. Coolz0r first suggested this in a post about our post saying that the company has supposedly been spreading this rumor to many people, implying that it was to try to get them more attention (successfully, apparently). However, now Coolz0r has also pointed us to an interview where the Meetro folks deny any acquisition is in progress. What’s still not clear is how this story got out in the first place? Who was the source for the original InternetNews story?
