Hi all,

FYI, Google announced social gadgets for iGoogle that lets people share gadgets 
on iGoogle. So far so good, think of an early stage Wave. You can 
collaboratively play games or edit todo lists.
The interesting part is a news feed called Updates. You can define Friend groups 
to receive updates of what you do, like or whatever, which are Newsfeed items we 
know from Facebook.
Lets wait for a "What are you doing" google gadget to see three players in the 
statusphere again after a consolidation from 3 to 2 after the FB FF acquisition 
on monday.
