    Samsung to Take On Facebook With its Own Social Platform


    Apparently, Samsung isn't content with simply integrating Facebook functionality with its smartphones. According to a new report, Samsung intends to start their own social network to compete with Facebook. This new network is codenamed, "Samsung Facebook," (how original...) and Samsung intends to tie it in with their existing devices and services. Samsung wants to create a social ecosystem on their own network amongst their own smartphones, cameras, and televisions. Here's a quote with some final details,

    The company hasn’t decided on a name for the service yet, but is currently working on its Family Story system which will provide the framework. Family Story was first shown off at CES 2012, and is designed to share photos, reminders, and memos via Samsung smartphones and televisions.

    Family Story will apparently be finished by the end of the year, with the service rolling out during the first quarter of 2013. Samsung officials speaking to The Korea Times said: “The eventual goal is to expand our social media service across different devices from different companies across different mobile platforms. That includes cameras, televisions and blue-ray [sic] players.”
    Well now. That's a pretty lofty goal for Sammy... What do you guys think?

    Um, why?

    I mean, seriously. Why? G+ isn't exactly exploding, Facebook is a travesty of a mistake (look at the IPO), and the market is saturated.

    Oh well, it wouldn't be the tech world if some big company said "Hey, what's new five years ago? Really? Nothing? How about ten? Awesome, let's do that because our startup will be infinitely superior to an established competitor or twelve."

    Lol, that's right FBM and let's give the government more info into our private lives than they already have. Or better yet the criminals have another site into committing crimes. Oh, don't forget another thing to distract the masses from their jobs and allowing big brother to trample more freedoms!

    Even without being paranoid, does it make sense to tell people that you live a XYZ Come Rob Me Boulevard and then go check in at "Happy Sal's 3-hour massage parlor with happy ending" so that the bad guys can see how long you'll be out of the house?
