Several features of Google‘s new social network are quite similar to Facebook features, and rumor has it that the two will become even more similar with time.
According to Engadget, Google Plus’s source code reveals that a social gaming network may be in the works.
Facebook has had major success with social games like Farmville and Mafia Wars, and it’s likely that Google will take a cue from its biggest competitor in the social space.
In 2010, Google invested over $100 million into Zynga, the social gaming giant that has enjoyed staggering profits from its partnership with Facebook. Engadget predicts that Google’s payoff for that investment may well come in the form of Google+ Games. Zynga is expected to make its initial public offering any day now.
