The rumors could be true. Google Me is supposedly the latest project being hammered out by a large staff of tech elves soon to be in direct competition with Facebook, the largest and most popular social media website today.
Lately Google has been pumping up Google Buzz, adding new apps and allowing users to be more easily connected. Google Me, however; could take their venture into the social media world a lot further.
There will be a few things for Google to overcome if it wants to be a large competitor of Facebook, which currently has 450 million users and growing. It is thriving far more than MySpace, and the interface is user friendly and well connected to other social network sites like Twitter and Digg.
The new information about Google Me originated from Adam D’Angelo, a former Facebook CTO and owner of the website, Quora. D’Angelo seems confident in his predictions, but Google is still keeping it under wraps for the most part.
Google Me, if it is true, would add healthy competition to the social media landscape, which has been so saturated that only a few remain on top like Facebook and Twitter. Google has had great success with its other online ventures that it will be interesting to watch as the company ventures further out into the social media arena.
