Has your Google Profile detected other pages? Seems Google has added a new feature to it's user's profile pages that makes adding suggested links easy...

No I don't see that. Is that on your normal profile page? http://www.google.com/s2/profiles/me

Isn't there some Social Graph API behind that?
[put at-character here]Dpneal Try adding your Friendfeed URL to your Google Profile and you should get all those suggestions.

weird, it's in the code but not displayed! view the source for my page above and then do a find for picasaweb and youtube...

I'm seeing this when I edit my profile too.

It's a bit odd that they're including a link back to your profile. And they're also including Flickr and Facebook even though I already have them listed:

Actually, I just tried to add all the suggestions and it failed to add Flickr, Facebook and Digg, although those link appear to have been added when I try to edit my profile. (They're even suggested again, meaning I can keep adding them over and over without them being displayed on my profile...)

Why isn't the Google Profile listed under the My Account page?

"Google Profiles" is listed in my "My Account" page but I think I signed in to the actual service here:

Is Google Profiles going to merge with Google Jaiku that use Google App Engine? Last week Google started to give away new invites to Jaiku.

Ex http://jyri.jaiku.com with lot of feeds from Youtube, blogs, last.fm etc. Jaiku has more mobile support like SMS, MMS (via Flickr), public communities/groups called channels etc than Google Profiles.

There is something interresting: it is able to list all Blogger blogs where you are the author.
it might be used to find all blogs for a specified user! Finally! :-)

If someone has a hack for that, I'm agree to help you for tests :-)
