Google May Be Flirting with Social Bookmarks
Rumor has it that the next project for the search leader taps into social networking, much like Yahoo's photo-sharing service Flickr.Internet search provider Google wants to capitalize on the social aspect of bookmarks, which are Internet addresses stored in Web browsers for one-click access, according to Google-watcher ValleyWag. Search providers have been trying to lure new customers, and keep their old ones, for years by tapping into the social aspect of what they offer, so what Google is supposedly working on is nothing new. Yahoos photo-sharing site Flickr is one good example.
But if this is true, Googles competitors and search consumers alike are bound to take notice because of Googles leading share of the Internet search market and its world-renowned brand.
