Google unveiled a new collaborative space called…Spaces today. It appears to be a private space where invited users can share posts, photos and links.

I might be off-base, but I wonder if it’s Google’s attempt to create a Ning-like tool.

You can read more about it at TechCrunch, Google tries its hand at social again with launch of group chat app, Spaces.

I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Collaboration — NOT In Real Time.
