So the big rumor of the weekend is that Google may soon launch a Facebook competitor called “Google Me.”
It all kicked off after Digg founder Kevin Rose tweeted:
As for me? Let me ask you this: What product has Google launched that has seriously competed in the social networking space? Any of these?
This is all the coverage I personally plan to give the story until two things happen:
- Google actually launches this new service
- It’s able to gain even a fraction of the market share of Facebook – and Brazil doesn’t count!
Until then, Google will remain a great search engine and a lousy social network.
