Google to launch Facebook competi -tor 'Google Me'

LONDON: Rumour has it that Google might launch its own social networking site 'Google Me'.

According to The Telegraph, Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg, tweeted, "Ok, umm, huge rumour: Google to launch Facebook competitor very soon "Google Me," very credible source" on June 28.

Google has reportedly been researching social networking patterns in order to create one of its own.

TechCrunch's tip-off leaked that the study is to take place at Google's Dublin office and will take 60 minutes with pollsters receiving 60 Euros per survey.

The questions are believed to centre on how social networking affects people's lives both off and online. TechCrunch's Leena Rao said, "While the survey doesn't confirm the existence of 'Google Me', it certainly is another piece of evidence pointing in that direction."
