Google’s social network has been delayed till April 2011, according to Searchengineland.com.
Google Me, is the would be killer of Facebook or its second coming depending on who you talk too. Google has tried previously to break into the social networking trend with Google Wave, which fizzled pretty bad.
The delay is likely due to an in-house disagreement about the purpose of the project. There are also other rumors that Google engineers have been defecting to Facebook looking to cash in on Facebook’s pre-IPO stock offer, according to Techcrunch.com
It is likely that the delay is simply Google polishing the site and attempting to build the hype. Google likely doesn’t want to duplicate some of their past mistakes in social networking.
It will be a tough battle for Google as Facebook has nearly 400 million users. Facebook also has plenty of new feature coming out including a new messaging platform.
Hopefully Google will help to continue to keep Lady Gaga off of social media networking.
