Google get ready to launch social circles

Google is ready to make another attempt to break the social networking market called 'Google Circles'.

According to ReadWriteWeb, Google plans to unveil a new product called Google social circles in the South by Southwest interactive conference later today. It will allow users to share links; photos and video mash like Twitter and Facebook, except with more attention to various social people, hence the name.

ReadWriteWeb's Marshall Kirkpatrick explains, it will allow people to share pictures, videos and status messages with people in their social circle. Google's site will be unique; the speculation goes, as it seeks to understand how our relations with our different friend’s social networking decide how truly close to them that we are, so adjust the amount of content that we share with these people.

Facebook, Twitter and other online social networks have broken down all the settings in a large bucket. We talked to our "friends" at once, regardless of what you might say a group of people or another. And so often feel less comfortable as they say nothing at all.

Google's preceding attempt on a social network, Google Buzz, was a PR disaster, revealing users' Gmail contact lists to each one they had ever matched with. Google then created a fund to help groups of private education. Buzz still exists, but its early problems meant he did not have the market penetration of its other products.
