Google+ Implements Our Hack! :)
It is a humble compliment to see how Yahoo!, Facebook and now Google have found the USP of our concept valuable.
FriendCircle was the winner of Yahoo! University Hackathon – HackU 2010 at IIT Bombay in October.
Yahoo! intended to use it in their products but we don’t really know how they’ve done it.
Facebook, in a few months had a small feature with a rather inconspicuous and not so convenient UI on their news feed settings which allowed the user to show more of <friend>.
Google, has recently released Google+ a new social networking platform with one of its USP based on Friend Circle. Though we have been a few steps ahead, they do seem to be heading in a similar direction:
