The New York Times’ Saul Hansel suggests that Yahoo! and Google are working on bringing social networking features to your email account.
OH, THANK BOB!! As you may know, I’m rather tired of Facebook, and I’m certainly tired of random "women" wanting to by my "friend" on the MySpace account I haven’t once logged into since I opened the account.
Among the biggest problem for me is the maintenance factor. I don’t want to go to someplace else to log in, view messages, respond to requests, and delete spam. I already do all of this with my email account. Isn’t that enough?
I say CHEERS to Google and Yahoo! and whoever else is going to put control of my social communication back into my email box like it used to be!
