Google Launch Social Network

10th February 2010 by Gareth Russell | Content & Search

Google have announced that they are increasing the offering to their 170 million Gmail customers. The email service is set to include social networking functionality to allow users to update their status in a Facebook style, as well as share content and comment on friends posts.

Google have dubbed the social network ‘Buzz’, which I’m sure will attract all the cool kids, but with their Android mobile OS the service comes ready to suit mobile users from the word go. Along with this they have linked in Google maps to show location data for where people are when they post to the site from mobile devices.

Who knows, maybe they’ll add street view to this too so the world can keep track of you even easier.
