Google Base: Social Networking?

Its alive and breathing: Google Base just launched as reported by the official Google Blog and is… well I honestly don’t know! The plan is to enable the users to search for items which have been submitted by other users for free use. Is this Google’s new method of becoming a part of a social network?

Anyone, from large companies to website owners and individuals, can use it to submit their content in the form of data items. We’ll host the items and make them searchable for free.

In my opinion, the validity and integrity of the data provided has yet to be prooved. In fact, I can submit anything I’d like and give false information just as if I’d write the most illogical things on my blog? I’m not sure if Google Base is such a useful tool as its maker say.

However, the ability to submit your own content and your own academic work seems to be a fair argument for the use of Google Base as a tool to publicize your thoughts.
