Google launches 'Photovine' picture-based social network 

Even while it is getting raves for its upcoming social network Google+, search giant Google already appears to be building a second network of sorts. went online this week, claiming to connect people through their photos to create "fun and new" vine-like "collections" of photos.

"In Photovine, vines connect you with people through the ideas and themes expressed in your photos. A vine is like a constantly growing family of photos connected through a common caption created by you, your friends, and people all over the world," the description on the site's About page said.

While Google's name does not figure prominently in the site, its privacy notice shows Photovine "is offered by Slide (part of Google Inc., located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, USA)."

Interestingly, the splash screen shows what appears to be an iPhone, and not a smartphone running Google's Android OS.
