Google has acquired Aardvark, a social search startup that enables users to easily and quickly get answers to their questions from the person most suitable to answer that question. The service is available through Vark.com, the Aardvark iPhone application, instant messaging, email and Twitter.

Founded in July 2007, Aardvark works on the philosophy that sometimes people want a person, not a web page, to answer their question. According to Aardvark, its technology analyzes questions to determine what they are about and then matches each question to people with relevant knowledge and interests to provide an answer.

“We are very impressed with the Aardvark team and the technology they have worked hard to build, and we are looking forward to collaborating to see where we can take it,” Johanna Wright, director, product management, search, Google, has said.
