    When is the Google Social Network being released?
    Not Sure but its definitely being released.

    It was supposed to be this Autumn but has been delayed, a reason why Facebook's updates have as well.

    What updates? Facebook is constantly being updated. Google has nothing to do with it

    No.

    Facebook is doing a major update and change when GoogleMe is released to stop people leaving.

    Basically, Google Buzz flopped so they are now trying a new method and are planning on integrating a lot more of their other services.

    GoogleMe has not been released, Google Buzz has and flopped.

    Facebook will do a major overhaul when it is released so people stay with Facebook. There has even been rumours of Facebook Email integrated to fight off Gmail.

    No. Buzz flopped.

    GoogleMe hasn't been released yet and is going to be a major Facebook Rival.

    GoogleMe is going to be a powerhouse.

    I heard about iPlayer as well.

    I think as Google own YouTube, I think they will run iPlayer & 4OD through that on their social network.

    It could possibly mean people watching programmes together whilst chatting or updating the network.

    VoIP is supposedly going to be integrated which will be great for business and world wide communication.

    Gmail is going to be massive although Facebook are supposedly set to launch Facebook Email as a rival.

    The competition is quite fierce and a lot of it is stemming on a number of top Google employees leaving and going to work for Facebook.

    All in all, their rivalry is great for us as they will try and compete and offer more services to gain users

    It's alright, especially compared to some of their other recent changes. But do they insist on making all the fonts a smaller size? This complaint may stem from the fact that I need new glasses, but still.

    didn't know about 4od.

    I know there is going to be international bbc iplayer, the bbc was going to go some deal with google.

    Additionally, a new Youview box would contain google, and googletv would feature bbc.

    I know there are deals going on.

    This is good news. For me, Googleme.

    Don't worry.

    GoogleMe will be out soon and everyone will use that for a number of reasons.

    1. Its going to have gmail integrated
    2. Its going to have google maps integrated
    3. its possibly going to have integration from Twitter/Facebook/eBay/Last.fm and other services. Basically the integration with Facebook will let you transfer friends and then shut down your Facebook account.
    4. It has the search engine built in
    5. Google Chrome is beast just as anything else Google create, except for Buzz.
    I don't care about any of those things.

    Based on the people that know about Google Me. The vast majority of Facebook users will have no idea about it, or not care.

    more people will know about it - obviously google will market it more publicly before launch.
