In a fight with Facebook, it appears that Google is now heavy involved in negotiations on acquiring Waze.

Whats interesting is that some claim Google needs Waze badly
Facebook is in talks to acquire traffic-information service Waze for as much as $1 billion, but Google will be making a big mistake if it doesn’t try to top that offer. [gigaom.com...]
- while others claim it needs it just to shut it down...
Waze has built a loyal and highly engaged community of social mappers. It would be an asset for any of the potential acquiring parties: Facebook, Apple, Microsoft or Google. Arguably, however, Google needs Waze the least of all the other parties identified. [searchengineland.com...]
