Facebook vs Google round 2

We have been following the new social kid on the block daily to see what they're pulling out of their magic bag of tricks to combat Facebook.

Just to bring you up to speed, in the early stages Google released a series beta testing sites to select beta testers , to test out the newest platform in Google’s social media arsenal. So far, all the reviews have been very favourable and this is obviously a well thought out execution.

Facebook, not to take this threat lying down has countered with two new features, video chat and group chat through a recent relationship with Skype. We thought the recent Microsoft acquisition of Skype might dampen that alliance, but it appears Microsoft has found more than one way to make money.

Facebook tech is burning the midnight oil to find ways to meet the challenge. We'll keep an eye on it for you. For more on this, check out this link. The Economic Times
