Take the cannoli: Multiplayer social game company Kabam chooses to launch its newest launch - The Godfather: Five Families - on Google's game network (GOOG +1.1%) instead of on Facebook. CEO Chris Carvalho says the deal with GOOG entails a 45-day exclusive in exchange for driving traffic to the game via its marketing muscle. He also notes his firm's games monetize well on Google+ despite the platform's smaller user base (40M vs. 800M).
