Google Plus is the newest social networking site to hit the Internet. Being as it’s from Google, it's no shock that this is going to turn out attractive big. While the network is still in its early life, anyone who has a Gmail account has access to the network. Due to the huge number of users of Gmail, the number of uses in Google Plus skyrocketed as soon as the network was made available. However, since it still has not publicly launched, there are many things lacking in Google Plus that Face book has. For example, businesses are not allowed on Google Plus yet, making the avenue inadequate for advanced advertising. There are many things that make Google Plus quite unique, and it will take some time for Face book to catch up.
Many people imagine that Face book has been slacking on updating its features, because until now it did not have any main competitors. MySpace privately died long ago, and freely I have always hated the really cluttered look of the site. Face book will always have a place in the social networking world, as it will be forced to innovate, but for now Google Plus has some very interesting features.
Google Plus's two most original features are Circles and Hangout. Circles are what all the high school and college users of Face book are really excited about. It allows you to keep out certain categories of people from certain postings, and is much well-organized than the Face book system of categorizing posts. You can create as many circles as you want and name it whatever you want, and your friends cannot see the name of your circles. For your work controller, you could friend him and put him in the circle of "Dumb boss", and he/she would not be any the wiser. It truly is an innovative system!
Then there is Hangout, which is a really grand feature. It allows you to video chat with multiple people at once. You can get all your friends together and chat in the same place, which is a supreme social networking feature. The future is finally here, and it is only a matter of time before we are speaking to each other using holographic representations of ourselves. It might sound mad, but such technology already exists, and at the rate technology is changing we will perhaps see that in the next pair years. It is going to be cute unbelievable!
