Facebook Trembles As Google Prepares A "Killer" Social Network

Over the past few days the rumor mills have been buzzing as news emerged that Google is working on a potential “Facebook killer”. This comes only days after we published about Facebook’s search strategy which could eventually become a direct competitor to Google. One thing is increasingly clear: this year could soon shape up to be more about Facebook versus Google in contrast to last year’s “Facebook versus Twitter” theme.

To say that Facebook isn’t concerned about Google planning an attack against them would most likely be inaccurate as Mark Zuckerberg has always been paranoid about potential competitors. However all recent attempts to squash Facebook have been completely ineffective. It would be difficult for Facebook to plan any form of defense given that they don’t know what Google is working on, but I’m sure they’ve strategized about all weaknesses in their existing system.
