Facebook is not the only successful social network [telegraph.co.uk]
In an interview with The Telegraph, Brittin, when asked if Google was indeed creating a new social network, to rival Facebook’s dominance, rumoured to be called ‘Google Me’ refused to ‘comment on that kind of rumour and speculation’ but stopped short of denying the claim.
He went on to argue that the global market was big enough for more than one social network. “"Facebook is an absolute phenomenon but there are other social networks which are successful too. We've got Orkut, which is fantastically successful in India and Brazil. And Bebo is successful in other countries," he said. "It's a phenomenon that is with us to stay. I think what we'll see is the internet becoming more of a social place, as well as people being social within the context of social networks."
