Google is rolling out profiles with information on Google products you use. Google Operating System reports that these profiles integrating in to all Google services so you have one identity across the Google services.
A Google Profile is simply how you represent yourself on Google products — it lets you tell others a bit more about who you are and what you’re all about. You control what goes into your Google Profile, sharing as much (or as little) as you’d like.
Profiles contain information like a nick name, occupation, location, links, photos and short description if you choose one. These profiles are public and they are searchable that means people can find you if you put your real name. Is this something like people search engine, or Google is trying to build a social network thingy with these profiles?. What do you think?
