Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

install a DECENT app by default on android phones where the user has to do little to nothing to sign up and im sure people will start to switch as it reaches critical mass. They have the classic problem of getting enough people On the network before anyone will bother to use it.

(although if they Do use what i suggest, wont be long before EU come a knocking)

I was saying to people last year that Google should try leveraging the existing Android user base to revive Orkut. In case people have forgotten, Google already has a social network. It just fell into unpopularity in the English speaking world because Americans are afraid of things written in Foreign, and it had large uptake in India and Brazil.

Orkut had a kind of MySpacey forum discussion system, and a Facebooky wall.
