Google's Social Network Better Than Expected
Posted by GGen on 2012-04-08 22:22:12
According to reports, Google Inc. has achieved greater success in its social networking feature than had been initially predicted and has enabled the company to atone for its alleged inattention in assisting their customers to connect with others online. According to reports, the average Google social network user averaged 3.3 minutes online, versus, Facebook
users, 7 ˝ hours. The company alleges that in their efforts to become the leading Web-search provider, they failed to be competitive in the growing area of people connecting to one another socially via the internet.

Reportedly, in January, Google considered linking information from Google+ into search queries used by their customers. It has been reported that this generated unexpected challenges from privacy groups as well as competitors who claimed that by including the links, Google’s products were unfairly being promoted over other available resources online. This reportedly led to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission expanding its investigation of the company to inquire whether this type of service did indeed interfere with the equality of the market share.

A spokesman for the company has allegedly admitted that they would welcome integrating other entities social information into Google’s network.

What do you see as the biggest obstacle to mainstream adoption of video calling?
Too many steps are required to reach a contact.
Video quality is often poor -- dropped calls, frozen images.
There's no advantage to face-to-face communication in most cases.
Too many people feel uncomfortable on live cameras.
There are too many security and privacy issues.
The trend is away from personal engagement and toward texting.
The obstacles are fading, and video calling is well on its way to adoption.
