Samsung to take on Facebook

Samsung has plans to enter the social networking market by launching a Facebook competitor by early next year.

This is according to a Korea Times report, which says the company hopes to launch a service which will be available via a range of Internet-enabled devices.

“The eventual goal is to expand our social media service across different devices from different companies across different mobile platforms. That includes cameras, televisions and blu-ray players,” said a Samsung spokesman.

The report also claims that the project is known internally as “Samsung Facebook”, and will be integrated with Amazon’s cloud computing platform.

“By the end of the year, we will have a polished and finished version of Family Story that will be offered first to Samsung device users for free. The new service will become available in the first quarter of next year at the earliest,” the Samsung spokesman finished.
