|Gmail becoming (more) social|
Tuesday, 09 February 2010 17:23
What we know already is that Gmail will soon have photo-sharing, video-sharing and status updates similar to Facebook's. The status updates will be in a stream on the Gmail home page, the photo- and video- sharing may be tied to Google-owned companies such as uTube (much in the same way that competitor Yahoo! incorporates Flickr sharing on Y!Mail).
What we don't know is whether these features will be tied to other social networks - such as being able to update your Twitter status through Gmail - as you can do here on myDL.
In recent months we have seen a number of Google attempts to be more social, including Google Wave and News Stars. Now, using their already-developed and popular mail platform, they may finally find something people will make regular use of.
We will have more details on what exactly Google is going to offer tomorrow (9 February).
