Gmail into Social Networking with status update feature

February 8th, 2010

Google Gmail is soon launching a new feature for sharing content and status updates with friends, just like Twitter and Facebook. With the growing popularity of social networking sites and Orkut, Google’s social networking site, losing its shine to Facebook and twitter in India and Brazil, Google was in desperate need to come up with some idea to keep its hold on social networking market. Despite the Google brand attached to it, Orkut never picked the market outside  Brazil, India and some other Asian countries.

Later this week may be Tuesday, Google will unveil its new feature added to Gmail that let people post and view messages about their day-to-day activities. To date, Google has let people post only a brief message about their status through its Chat system, which is linked to Gmail. The new features would allow a more vibrant back-and-forth among Gmail users.
