Google's experimental products incubator Area 120 has begun testing a new social networking app called Shoelace that's designed to help people find things to do and others who share the same interests at a local level. "One of the many projects that we're working on within Area 120 is Shoelace, an app that helps people meet others with similar interests in person through curated activities," a Google spokesperson told website TechCrunch. "Like other projects within Area 120, it's an early experiment, so there aren't many details to share right now," they said.
