The Google Ecosystem

by on Jun.09, 2014, under Debat

The definition of an Ecosystem according to wikipedia: Is a community of living organisms  interacting as a system. “As ecosystems are defined by the network of interactions among organisms, and between organisms and their environment”. When We talk about global tech firms like Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple – an Ecosystem is a conglomerate of different divisions, products and services.

Google is a “Search” firm and it does deliver a lot of search engines, but it also delivers computer programs and other services:


The search engines: – Search engine for scientific information – A Search engine which shows the popularity of searches – You can search the content of millions of books –  See how much a given word is used in Google Books – Video Search – Search Engine for video – Search Engine for images – Search Engine for the chat in discussion groups – Search Engine for the contents of blogs – A Search Engine for code snippets

The Services: – Email – Calendar – Map service – A Translator – Social Network – About programming – Stick-it pages – Your Data in the Sky – Blog platform – All Your Bookmarks in the Sky – A Skype wannabee with extra functionality – Link Shortener

The computer programs:
 – Photo management program – Browser – 3D drawing – Maps in 3D

And this list isnt even complete – I have only mentioned the products which might be relevant for the average user – There are a lot of services and programs for businesses and advertisers.

Google is in it for the Money! – The user pays Google for the “Free” services by doing “Digital labor”;  which is revealing a lot of personal data to Google, which they can sell to the advertisers in form of different products. – The business ecosystems might seem altrustic when they gives You their services for free but it couldnt bee further from the truth!
