An Alliance Could Answer The Growing Threat from Google and Facebook

By Evelyn M.Rulsi and Nick Bilton

Apple, which has stumbled in its efforts to get into social media, has talked with Twitter in recent months about making a strategic investment in it, according to people briefed on the matter.

Although apple has been hugely successful in selling phones and tablets, it has little traction in social networking, which has become a major engine of activity on the Web and on mobile devices. Social media are increasingly influencing the ways people spend their time and money-important consideration for Apple, which also sells application, games, music and movies.

Apple has considered an investment in the hundreds of millions of dollars, one that could value Twitter at more than $10 billion, up from an $8.4 billion valuation last year, these people said. They declined to be identified because the discussions were privcate.

There is no guarantee that the two companies, which are not in negotiations at the moment, will come to an agreement. But the earlier talks are a sign that they may form a stronger partnership amid intensifying competition from companies like Google and Facebook.

Apple has not made many friends in social media.

Kata “partnership” adalah sebuah kegiatan kerja sama yang dilakukan oleh kedua belah pihak untuk mendapatkan suatu manfaat positif sehingga pilihan jawaban (E) adalah yang paling tepat karena ‘identify’ artinya ‘mengenali’. Pilihan jawaban (A) salah karena meski artinya juga ‘kerja sama’ secara kontekstual, tidak cocok dalam kalimat di atas karena kata ‘kolusi’ digunakan untuk menyatakan persengkokolan dalam hal yang negatif, (B) salah karena artinya ‘persaingan’, (C) salah karena artinya ‘persetujuan’, dan (D) salah karena artinya ‘negosiasi/perundingan’.
