Google+ currently has some of the strongest social sharing capabilities thanks to the robust Circles feature. this will now extend into sharing what users currently own, or would like to own. Some leaked data uncovered by Google Operating System found that Google may be working on a tool that allows users to easily control products they have or are interested in. An internal only product called “Google Mine” helps users deal with what type of content is shared with specific circles.
The intro text to the product states the following:
“Google Mine lets you share your belongings with your friends and keep up to date with what your friends are sharing. It enables you to control which of your Google+ Circles you share an item with. It also lets you rate and review the items, upload photos of them and share updates on the Google+ Stream where your friends get to see and comment on them.”
A mobile version was also uncovered that includes a handful of messages that are leveraged on the service. According to Google Operating System users will also be able to:
- Search for stuff people have shared on Mine.
- See instant matches for your stuff, and the people in your circles.
- Use What’s Hot to follow what others are sharing.
- Organize and share your stuff as lists.
