Zuckerberg : Google plus ? it is …


Zuckerberg says he actually doesn’t have much to say about Google+.

On the other hand he does say that in the last five years we have seen more and more companies trying to put in social networking items into their applications and services. He adds,

“We’ll see a lot of companies who haven’t looked at social begin to build it into their apps. Not just Google.” He also says that we might see the streaming video company Netflix add some more social networking features.

Overall Zuckerberg states, “I view this as validation of how this is going to play out over the next five years. Every app is going to be social. If we build the best service, there’s massive value there. If we don’t, somebody else will.”

The revamped chat system now includes a sidebar with “the people you message most.” It automatically appears when your browser is big enough.

Of course, this comes just a week after the launch of Google+, which includes a video chat  feature called ‘Hangouts’. Facebook’s video chat doesn’t support group chats yet, but when asked if Facebook will be rolling out group video calling, Zuckerberg said not to rule anything out. He added that one-to-one calling makes up the vast majority of video calling.
