It has been a struggle to put my Net isocial_networking_sitesidentity and service usage at one place. Actually, I am great follower of Google Eco-System but while competing this list, there were many important items which fell outside the Google Zone. Following are few which I could jot down.

  • Google Social Graph:
    • Message – Email
    • Chat – Google Talk
    • Calendar – Calendar
    • Photo – Picaca
    • Notes – Notebook
    • Blog Feed – Feedburner
    • RSS – Reader
    • Social Network – Orkut
    • Video – YouTube
    • Blogs – Blogger
    • Website Infrastructure – Apps
  • Non-Google graph:
    • Professional Network: Linkedin and Xing
    • Social Network – Facebook
    • OpenID – Verising, OpenID,
    • Agregator – Mybloglog
    • Network File System – Box net
    • Bookmark – Foxmarks
  • Preferred over Google:

    • Blogs – WordPress
    • Photo – Flikr

Ideally, anyuser would like to keep all his important belonging at one place where trust and faith stays. This is against the philosophy of elders “never keep all the eggs in one basket”, but today when experimentation is the way of life. What if basket can be tightly protected … what is the harm?

My trust in Google services has been nothing less than existence of Sun and Stars in universe. But a million Euro question … Can Google ever fill in the space… and in time?
