Google which is known as a high speed search engine has miserably failed to survive in the world of social networks. The little twins of the, the Google, orkut and MySpace found hard to stay alive in this competitive world.
Many in the country do not exactly know what it means by orkut or MySpace. This is a very shocking kind of situation for many who spend nearly their entire day on the web pages of the social networks. On the other hand, these two social networking sites of the Google are very much popular in other parts of the world; it has not dug its roots deep in the soil of the U.S. Back in the July of 2008, Google was seen launching a social networking site which was called as the Lively. When it made its debut it had a warm welcome, but as days rolled by the popularity vanished completely which led to the closure of the site in the same year itself. But in the limited time of few months, lively was able to attract the minds and hearts of the people, with its extraordinary and well natured actions.
Then it was the implementation of another social networking site by the Google, which was called as the Buzz. Google released the networking site which was coined as Buzz in order to produce a tough competition with Twitter. In spite of all the regularities which are very common with one another, buzz was not able to withstand the tough competition and buzzed away.
The whole world raised their eyebrows on the Google when it introduced an experimental feature which is called as the +1. This feature is found to be very much similar to that of the Face book’s “Like” key. This announcement came from Google on the very same day when a report from the Federal Trade Commission arrived. In spite of its leading role in the field of technology through the wonderful wands of the Google and its brother the Gmail, it has failed to achieve great heights in the field of social media.
