Google Glass Is Going Social With Facebook, Twitter, And Others
Google Glass, by design, is a social product. Customers wear the glasses everywhere and therefore, they have the option to easily stay connected on the go.
With that real-time connectivity, it was only a matter of time before social networks jumped on-board.
Announced at Google I/O, the product is now receiving social connectivity via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and collaboration platform Evernote.
Before those social networks jumped on-board, Google Glass was already connected to mobile-only social network Path.
Each of the social networking options will be available as “Glassware,” the new name for Google Glass apps.
Twitter is currently allowing Google Glass users (mostly developers), to tag their Tweets from Google Glass with the hashtag #throughglass.
The social aspect is also being picked up by other platforms. For example, Elle magazine is curating photos, videos, and read-aloud excerpts that can be shared in article and photos form via Google Glass.
Will you be trying out Google Glass with social media connectivity when it finally arrives to market?
