google-acquires-frommers.jpgBack in August Google acquired the travel brand Frommer's from John Wiley & Sons Inc, and last week Google sold the brand back to founder Arthur Frommer. As part of the deal, Google kept Frommer's social media accounts and then swiftly deleted Frommer's Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare, Google+, and Pinterest accounts. Also: @FrommersTravel is now @ZagatTravel, which means the 295,000 followers get treated to a bunch of untrustworthy slideshow listicles. [Skift]
