  1. This weekend, ReadWriteWeb posted an article titled "Google to Launch Major New Social Network Called Circles, Possibly Today" that had detailed look about a supposedly new social network that would offer photo, video, and status message sharing. The report, which went into quite a bit of detail about the product, said Google would likely unveil it in some form at South by Southwest Interactive today.

    If I was a betting I would put money on that they are working on a social network thing of their own.

    is about, actually.
  4. Google would be the last social network that I would join. They have enough information about me already...

    Rather than accept the reality, Facebook users have pretty much shut that part of their Facebook experience out of their minds.

    Considering how much Facebook's IPO value is growing, that data appears to be very valuable, and there sure must be a lot of it.

    Ya but then it will basically be the same info from facebook + the info Google already has. His concern is valid.

    RRW is known to be wrong a lot, so this is not a surprise at all.
