Still smarting from the Buzz flop, Google is reportedly set to launch a new social network.
Google Circles is reported to have most of the typical sharing, posting, commenting features of the other major social network,with the possible difference being that it will be more private and more developer-friendly. It apparently will be marketed as a place for close friends to connect and share.
So, in summary, Google is most likely working on something called Circles. We do know that it is some sort of social network. We don’t know exactly when it will launch or what will differentiate it from the other networks.
