Google’s Social Layer May Be a Toolbar

Update: A screenshot of what this toolbar might look like has appeared. Google of course says it is always testing features, and has nothing new to announce. 

“Google Me” Social Layer Reportedly Called “Emerald Sea” Internally

Update: Google is already calling "Emerald Sea" something else according to a report. 

Original Article: It’s been widely discussed for months now: Google is working on some kind of social strategy that would presumably be the company’s latest shot at trying to take on Facebook. Of course the company itself has never presented it this way, but the lines aren’t too hard to read between.
