Will Google Launch a Social Network?


Rumour has been circulating recently in the technology industry that Google is to launch a social network to rival Facebook.

Technology blog Next Web has made the claim that this will be launched in May. Google is often seen to be lagging behind in terms of social media and if the rumours are true, this new social networking site could rival Facebook’s current dominance of the sector.

Google will launch a social network, possibly called Google Circles, at its Google I/O conference in May, according to technology blog The Next Web.

The blog made the claim on Friday but it gathered ground over the weekend after the Read/Write Web blog claimed that the service would launch at the South By Southwest conference in Austin, Texas.
