Google to release Facebook look alike

Written by Nick Farell

Google is reportedly working secretly on "Google Me" which is a social notworking site to compete with Facebook.

Digg's, Kevin Rose, tweeted that he had heard a "huge rumour" from a "very credible source" that Google was going to launch a Facebook competitor "very soon". Rose has removed the tweet, saying he was asked to do so but that just made the rumours seem more credible.

Adam D'Angelo, former CTO of Facebook and now co-founder of social Q&A site Quora claimed to have received information from "reliable sources".

The rumoured site is expected to be more than Google Buzz, a Twitter competitor recently launched as an add-on to Gmail that allows users to share links, photos, video and status messages. And bigger than its Orkut social notworking site , which was launched in January 2004 but only became popular in India and Brazil.

Google also has a location-sharing social product, Latitude, but it too has been dominated by start-ups, namely Foursquare.
