Google might not have succeeded in building a successful social networking platform inspite of several attempts, but that isn't apparently stopping the company from giving it one more shot anyway. Today the company revealed Shoelace, a new social network centered around finding people with similar interests and meeting in up with them in the real world.
A lot of people organize events using Facebook, so it's definitely a worthwhile niche to chase after. You can create a listing for an event or activity you're participating in, and invite friends and strangers to join you.More news: Over 370000 sign petition to release rapper A$AP Rocky
Then, each day you'll see nearby events - which Shoelace thematically calls "Loops" - that match those interests you've selected.
While Google says it plans to eventually bring Shoelace to cities around the United States, there seems to be no immediate thoughts of launching the service internationally. Believed to have been first reported by Android Police, the search giant's experimental 'Area 120' team has now launched a new hyper-local news service called Shoelace that also doubles up as a social network of sorts. Contradicting most expectations, Google has announced Shoelace, a social networking app that lets people connect using different activities. "It's great for folks who have recently moved cities or who are looking to meet others who live nearby". It is now being tested exclusively in NY, but if it proves successful, a wider roll-out could be in the cards.More news: Rob Gronkowski catches passes from Tom Brady
It's now invite-only, and promises to help you "connect with others who have the same interests.". "We also work hard to make sure that everything you see in Shoelace - from profiles to Loops - is aligned with our House Rules and community standards".More news: Turkey receives first delivery of Russian missile system
