After not doing too well in the whole social network scene with Google Buzz, new rumors surfaced saying that the search engine giant might give it another go. Google has been rumored to launch a new social network that is supposedly more private than Facebook. The social network, rumored to be called Circles, will allow users to selectively share content with people who are in different circles of their lives. This means that strangers or people who aren’t in specified circles won’t be able to check up on what you’re doing (but since this is the internet, it’s going to be interesting to see how Google protects your data). Not much details have been released about the network, but it was rumored that Google will be launching it at the SXSW event. However the folks at Cnet contacted Google, who promptly denied that they will be doing such a thing. Whether Google Circles even exists remains questionable though, as Google didn’t confirm nor deny its existence. I guess we’ll have to wait for more news in the future. Stay tuned.
