Online rumours suggest Google could be about to take on Facebook with the launch of a social media product in May.

Tech website The Next Web suggests that 'Google Me', the firms much speculated drive into social media could launch at this year's I/O developers conference in San Francisco in May.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt said in September the company was looking to add a social layer to all of its products but since then no new social-based products have been launched.

Google has a habit of making product launches at the conference, which attracts developers from across the world. Last year Google TV was unveiled while in 2009 Google Wave was launched.
