Yahoo and Gmail entering the Social Network World?

So it appears that Yahoo and Gmail want to get in on the huge business of Social Networking…

Here’s an article I picked up from the NY Times:

Brad Garlinghouse, who runs the communication and community products for Yahoo, was a lot more forthcoming. He didn’t-have dates or specific product details either. But he did say that Yahoo was working on what he called “Inbox 2.0.”

This has several features. First, the e-mail service is made more personal because it displays messages more prominently from people who are more important to you. Yahoo is testing a method that can automatically determine the strength of your relationship to someone by how often you exchange e-mail and instant messages with him or her.

You can read the rest of the article here: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/11/13/inbox-20-yahoo-and-google-to-turn-e-mail-into-a-social-network/index.html?ref=technology

The article includes the little bit of details that they have on Google’s “Social Network”… This is potentially revoluntionary and could change the way online social networking happens…
