Initially called a "Facebook killer," Google Me is now said to be a social toolbar/Chrome extension—but don't get too disappointed. Rumormongers are saying the project's so big, Sergey Brin is playing an active part in the development.
At yesterday's Google Zeitgeist conference in Arizona, CEO Eric Schmidt confirmed that the company will roll out a new social service, internally dubbed Google Me, sometime this Fall. They basically want to give your web a social booster shot.
When Digg founder Kevin Rose tweeted about the existence of "Google Me," Google's supposed "Facebook killer" social-networking site, I'd love to know whether he expected Facebook's former-CTO to jump into the fray and confirm it, saying it's a "real project."
Well this is kinda wacky. Citing a "very credible source," Digg founder Kevin Rose tweeted that Google is readying "Google Me," a social service intended to go toe-to-toe (face-to-face?) with Facebook. It's like Google stalking, but official, and thus marginally less creepy!
