Google to launch Google Circles social network?
Google rumoured to announce its own 'Circles' Facebook competitor at May conference.
According to a post on tech blog The Next Web, Google is looking for a bite out of that lucrative social networking apple. The blog predicts the Google-built Facebook competitor - named Google Circles - will be announced at Google's annual I/O conference, scheduled this year for May 10-11th.
The Google I/O conference is the traditional jump-off point for big Google products, and in the last couple of years saw the launch of Google Wave and Google TV. If Google is hiding the next Facebook up its sleeve, I/O would be the place to announce it.
