But it is an ideal time for other to jump into their business model. Google jumps into everything to support their primary business (advertising) and product (search) without any intention of ensuring quality.
YouTube - They don't moderate it aggressively.you will find all kinds of junk videos and comments.
Blogger - ditto
Android and gadgets running on it - Their response will be "ask the manufacturer for any of your problems - we are into it just for advertising".
The list will go on.
But they will ask others to do quality control aggressively. Otherwise panda or something else will eat you. (looks like panda doesn't like the taste of Youtube or blogger). These are gimmicks to make people believe that they are doing everything for users and they are the internet's only saviour.
To compete against them, mimic them. That is what they do.
Why isn't Facebook starting up a search engine? They should be doing it as soon as possible. Google's strength is releasing products quickly.To compete them, you should act quickly. either do something on your own or partner someone aggressively in promoting new products.
Why isn't Microsoft getting aggressive in promoting their search engine or advertising business. if they start giving things free, it will work for them too. They shouldn't be too greedy at retaining everything for themselves and they should jump into products with a "free" and sharing mindset.
Unless those with cash start troubling Google by getting into their business model (at-least partly), it will be difficult to compete against their products.Yes, you might ensure much better quality than the Google products but you cannot capture the market quickly unless you learn to make people believe that you are giving away products for "free" or "you aren't evil". someone should take on their "business model" and not just their products.
