Several sources are now rumouring that Google is planning an alternative social network – supposed to be a “Facebook Killer”.
Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg recently tweeted that Google is building a “Google Me” service to compete with Facebook.
This would be a huge move by Google and would take a lot to win over a lot of the seasoned Facebook users, but with the consumer confidence and a strong technical lead behind them maybe they can do it.
With Facebook recently topping the chart for the most popular website in the US, there’s obviously a reason for Google to step up to the plate and have a go at competing.
Details are still scarce, however the former CTO of Facebook Adam D’Angelo stated on his site that there are many people working on the project.
