Kevin Rose, Digg Founder Now In Google’s Camp

With Google paying a reported $15 million for Kevin Rose’s new startup called “Milk” and news last week about CNN acquiring Mashable – it shows Entrepreneurship pays off for the dedicated.

You heard right, Rose is now joining the Google team with the Milk takeover, along with most of the Milk employees. Milk has been shutdown, and the technology driving the new platform will now be integrated into Google’s social media strategy – with an assumption to help boost Google Plus usage.

However, not everyone got to come along for the ride. Milk’s technical engineers were let go, and only the design and product development members were brought in under the new terms. But, it could be guessed, as Google has quite the technical expertise already.

Released in a statement about the Google acquisition of Milk, Rose commented “I can’t wait to be a part of the amazing team that is shaping the future of the web.”

As Google continues to push the Google Plus platform, and for ways to make YouTube more interesting and interactive for users – perhaps Team Rose will bring some new techniques to the search giant in the competition against other social platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
