Facebook or Gmail? Analysts are Watching

Facebook‘s new messaging system doesn’t seem to scare Google CEO Eric Schmidt. While some would suggest it could shake Google’s via its Gmail, his sentiment is “the more the merrier in the space for e-mailing” according to a story on San Diego News Net.

Referencing his comments at a Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco Monday, the story says Schmidt is  pro-rivalry as a market-growing force. With analysts watching Facebook’s new system, questions are swirling about whether there will soon be a line in the sand between the two that could impact other tools Google currently provides as well as overall application use.

Schmidt focused his comments on development and Gmail’s current success. He also addressed the issue of privacy by saying that some of his comments have been “misinterpreted,” the article goes on to say.
