The Discord server is a popular social network for gamers.
And while the community is a relatively small, the service is growing fast.
In May, Google announced a $250 million deal with Discord for “the right to deliver content to our community and to provide advertising services for our community,” the New York Times reported.
That meant Google was acquiring Discord for a fraction of the $2.2 billion Google spent on advertising on Facebook in 2016.
Google has said it wants to build on Discord’s growing user base.
Discord recently launched a “free” feature that allows users to create their own groups, groups and groups, the Times reported, but the company also plans to “offer more tools and tools for people to connect, form and share groups,” according to the Times.
The free feature has raised concerns about privacy.
Discord claims it is a place where people can meet, hang out, and have fun without worrying about their private data being seen by advertisers.
Discord is a virtual community that connects people around the world.
But in recent months, the company has said that it wants more privacy features in place, and its terms of service are vague about how it will handle information from third parties.
In a recent blog post, Discord founder Sean Vanaman said he was “troubled” by the news of Google’s acquisition.
“The truth is, there are millions of people in our community who will be happy to hear the news, but we have had a lot of requests for clarification,” he wrote.
Discord was founded by a former Google employee, who quit to build the service for the likes of Facebook and Twitter, according to VentureBeat.
“We want to continue to innovate and keep up to date with all the new tech we’re using,” he said in a statement to Venturebeat.
“We also want to create an inclusive environment for people of all genders and sexualities to be part of the Discord community.”
