Samsung aiming for complete mobile domination with rumored Facebook competitor

@ 2012/06/14
Samsung's made no secret of its ambitions to commandeer all aspects of mobile tech -- from the devices themselves to processors and software like ChatON and the recently announced Siri competitor S Voice. While we've seen the company head into social media territory before, it looks like it wants an even bigger piece of that pie. According to The Korea Times, Sammy is gearing up to launch a Facebook-style service early next year. The network, code-named (rather transparently) Samsung Facebook, will supposedly be integrated with Amazon's cloud computing platform, and the company is using its already-existing Family Story network as a starting point for the service. And lest you think the company sees edging out Facebook as a serious challenge, it hopes to expand its social media service "across different devices from different companies across different mobile platforms."
