Tech news from around the web:
- Following a spate of rumours circulating this year’s SXSW gathering about the launch of a Google social network, TechCrunch speculates on how the search giant is set to launch its rival to Facebook:
Google will focus a lot on groups of friends and how you share with them, and try to differentiate themselves from Facebook in this and other ways.
Google doesn’t appear to want to have a big launch announcement around the product, now or down the road. They keep releasing (or dealing with leaks) new social features in drips and drabs: toolbar stuff, profile stuff, video stuff.
