    Google unveils new photo-sharing social network



    Google has begun rolling out a new social-networking photo service, dubbed Photovine.

    Though Google has said little publicly about Photovine, the service appears to be one in which consumers can take snaps from their phones and have them upload in a stream of pictures in the same way that tweets flow into Twitter. Presumably, if you subscribe to someone else's Photovine, you'll see their latest photos almost as soon as they shoot them.

    The service, though, isn't yet live. There's only the opportunity to request an invitation on Photovine's Web site, with no indication of when the service will launch.

    Business Insider was the first to notice that photovine.com went live. In addition to requesting an invitation, potential customers can also watch a video of how Google envisions the service working.

    Google has offered few details about the service and said little in response to a query.

    "Photovine is a photo-sharing service built by a few folks at Slide," the company said in a statement, referring to the social-media company it acquired in August. "It's a fun way to learn more about your friends, meet new people and share your world with others."

    Photovine comes just as Google is ramping up its Google+ social-networking service. But it's unclear if the two services will be aligned.

    The video Google posted features folks taking photos with iPhones, which clearly suggests that Photovine will be an iPhone app. But there is no Photovine app currently available in iTunes. And presumably, Google will make it available for customers using phones that run its Android mobile operating system.

    Wow, Google has been the busy little bee the last couple weeks haven't they?
    Rooted OG D1 running Liquid Gingerbread 2.6, Project Elite v6.5, Droid Concepts 12 and many more!
    Chevy No.1 Low V 1.1 Ghz Kernal

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    Remember the good 'ole days, when people used to record their bedroom"adventures" on videotape? I just don't think realtime sharing of cellphone photos is going to work out nicely for some people.

    If you actually read the article, it states that the video on it talks about it being an iphone app. But that doesn't neccesarily mean its just for iphone.
