Nowadays various social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter rules the top ranking; orkut is long forgotten by several amusingly. Also Google is planning to launch a new social network called Google Circle soon probably in May to bring in a huge audience of users looking for a more personal, structured network with more sovereignty of expression. Here are provided all the key features and services of 'Google Circle' so read ahead to know it.
Google Circles will offer services like photo, video and message sharing and more. All the things users share on Circles will be shared only with the most suitable circle of social contacts in their lives, instead of all contacts in bulk as per a report by Marshall Kirkpatrick on ReadWriteWeb. Few reports suggest that Google Circles will even permit sharing status messages among groups of friends on varied social networks, also known as “Social circles”. How our real lives are structured with family, close friends, co-workers and lots of special groups & interests, these all consists of in Social circles.
Circles has been created by Chris Messina, the co-creator of abundant successful social and software phenomena online and Jonathan Sposato, CEO of the photo editing service Piknik. Messina declined to say any words for this story. To have sold two startups to Google Sposato may be the only entrepreneur.
Facebook and Twitter are so famous that they have become nearly a part and parcel of daily living for numerous people and most of the users of Orkut have deleted their accounts and transferred to both these sites. Google will launch a new social service in order to pull the users back. A few doubts raises in mind of some people that really Google Circles will be social considering the amount of privacy settings that Google came up with Google Buzz and Google Wave. Google denies of any such development right now so the entire thing seems to be quite controversial. One probable danger of Google Circles is that it will turn out to be complex as its tough enough in the real world to work out who your friends are; someone is your friend one day while someone you used to know on the other.
The gossip goes around that Google’s new site will be exclusive since it will try to understand how we narrate to our different social networking friends, decide how much truly we are close to them as well as modify the amount of content we share with those people. In order to get developers to expend their time with its APIs, Google Circles will have to be vast, unique and gather a lot of users speedy. How a new social network from Google would integrate Facebook will be very interesting to check out. It can be said that Facebook has very less days to relax now.
Liz Gannes at the technology blog All Things D said in reply to RWW that there is no such product being developed and if the matter seems true then it’s a real shame. Google has denied that it is creating a stand alone social network although persistent rumors dating back from many months. Instead of it Google told that it’s integrating a “social layer” into its diverse properties. There have been tons of hearsay about what a new Google social network would be and do, initially rumored to be “Google Me.”
