The Updates section sounds sorta like its imitating FriendFeed to me.

Just read about it on GoogleOS, but for some reason I was unable to find the mentioned gadges... any help?
# Updates gadget: post and view updates.
# Friends Manager gadget: add test friends in the sandbox.
# Profile gadget: view and edit your limited sandbox profile.

I can't even believe how little I care about this social stuff. Thanks, but no.

it is imitating, but if you are a social person and use igoogle, it will probably be useful. tho, you could just add the FF feed in there :)

You should check out our iGoogle competitor ClutterMe ( We're a custom homepage tool and we've been social for about 6 months.

This look very good to me. It looks like it could be something very neat.

I like the way this has built up slowly. Suddenly iGoogle is a social network. And suddenly it could be massive.

To add all the special sandbox gadgets:

- updates
- friends
- my gadgets

PS: they should either buy FriendFeed or make iGoogle vert suitable for this great app (i.e they shouldn't try to compete directly, or igoogle will be what orkut is compared to Facebook).

I thought FriendFeed was supposed to buy Google.
