U.S. Federal Trade Commission to investigate Google Plus

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google's latest venture into the world of social media, Google Plus, has come under fire in the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) antitrust probe, according to new reports.

Apparently, the FTC will be looking into Google which is said to be exploiting its undisputed lead in the search market, in favour of Google Plus. This is a site that is believed by many to be the most capable contender to challenge Facebook's domination, in the social media market.

Google Plus, which was launched last year in June and is seen as an amalgam of both Facebook and Twitter, as the site blends many of both those two platforms' features together, with its own unique offerings.

The reports of Google Plus being under FTC's scanner came after the Mountain View based search giant announced last week the introduction of some tweaks in its search engine. The renovations made in Google's search abilities will lead to search results now featuring photos, comments and news from Google Plus postings.

When asked for comments, a Google spokesperson reportedly said that the company was not informed by the FTC that it was including Google Plus in the antitrust probe.

FTC has also refrained from issuing any comments whatsoever regarding the issue, IT Pro Portal reported.
