Last week it was Search, Mail and Calendar and this week the announcement that Blogger and Picasa will be renamed Google Blogs and Google Photos respectively no doubt with the requisite new look. Several other Google brands are likely to be affected to reports Mashable who broke the story on the web. They also mentioned that YouTube will remain as it is and won’t be rebranded,
It looks like the rebranding is scheduled for the end of July which is rumoured to be the date that Google+ goes public. This date is highly likely to be the day or release as on the same day all private Google Profiles are set to be removed. The idea behind the removal is thought to be to make way for privacy through Circles.
Time will tell…
