Google To Launch Social Media Feature For Gmail Users
It is a feature which will make it easier for Gmail users to view and share their status updates.
Rumor has it that Google could launch this feature as soon as this week.
It should be noted that Gmail users can already update their statuses but as soon as a new update gets posted, the previous one disappears. Users will be able to see stream of updates and the feature will be integrated with YouTube and photo-sharing site Picasa.
I doubt that this will have a huge bearing on Twitter and Facebook but it will all depend on how Google delivers this one. Yahoo previously launched a feature that’s almost the same but not many people are using it.
