Google To Build Social Network Into Start Page?


Posted April 22, 2008 - By bleahy

New details have emerged that could point to Google's plans for a new social network. They recently released a developer sandbox for their iGoogle personalized start page that incorporates Google's OpenSocial API.

This could mean Google is setting up to launch a social network directly on iGoogle.

Although developers can get a preview of this new service, Google says, "This is not the final network that will be used in iGoogle. Users will have full control over who their friends are and will be able to easily modify their list of friends. Stay tuned for details."

Do you use iGoogle as your homepage? You don't, do you? You use G4tv.com, right? Good.
