Inside Google's 'Facebook Killer'

Google has a "Facebook killer" on its hands. And, no, I'm not talking about Google's Orkut social network (unless you live in Brazil, where Orkut has already "killed" Facebook). Google is just one acquisition away from offering a social network that does everything Facebook does, minus all the things everybody hates about Facebook. This social network is called Google Profiles.

I mucked around with this expanding set of google profile stuff.. First my profile picture, and the integration of chat, and gmail, and reader, and sharing / commenting things you read there... then the other day I saw they had expanded their profile, and would accept info RE: what High School I went to, what college, what jobs I've worked... certainly smelled like social networking on the horizon to me... but how much of that would work without being a gmail user? for everybody to use the google facebook killer, would they have to be gmail users I wonder... and would they take that plunge from yahoo.. msn.. etc.

Actually it's Google Wave that will be the Facebook killer. Not that it matters -- Facebook (or Fecesbook, as I like to call it) will eventually collapse under its own weight anyway. Walled gardens are not sustainable -- just ask America Online.
