The Google keeps on try hand on something innovative. Earlier, the Google+ was the social network but for some reason it has been closed since a few months back. Now, the Google has blazed a trail in developing a social network app ‘Shoelace App’. The innovative developers of this social networking are from the 120 area unit of Google.
