Submission + - Gmail, Too, Seeks to Rival Facebook (wsj.com)

chicagoan writes: Google Inc. is taking a swipe at Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. (WSJ subscription may be required) with a new feature that makes it easier for users of Gmail to view media and status updates shared online by their friends. Google could announce the new Gmail feature as soon as this week, said people familiar with the matter. A Google spokeswoman declined to comment.

The change adds a module to the Gmail screen that will display a stream of updates from individuals a user chooses to connect with, said one of these people. It is a format popularized by Facebook and Twitter.
