  • 1. Google+: Google’s attempt in social media and networkingGoogle Plus continues to be trending like a popular topic in offline and online conversations lately. Thetalk of a completely new social network website has excited many people as of late where there areeven a handful of lucky folks, aside from those people currently working together with Google about theproject, who are able to test out this particular fresh social media.What is Google+?Google Plus is the social media product of Google, the company behind the renowned internet searchengine. Current consumers of Google websites, Gmail and YouTube for instance, will be excited to knowthat brand new and great social networking web site will in fact attempt to integrate the majority ofcurrent Google expert services. One of the goals on this new website is to simplify and enhance onlinesharing. Since project lead Vic Gundotra said inside an interview with a techie blogger, “We believeonline sharing is broken. And even awkward. We believe linking with others is really a fundamentalhuman need…but our online tools are firm. They force us into buckets - or into being entirely public.”Whats Google+ then? Well, for starters, this is not merely your regular fare social networking website.This is actually much more of an extension or evolution for the whole of Google. Yes, you still have yourown standard friends and sharing of content, however, and here’s where Google+ begins to vary andbecome much more amazing, Google offers practically streamlined the process where one can easilylook for connected content and share it to individuals with similar interests. These are just a couple ofassociated with the many features the actual social networking website offers.Google+ FeaturesTogether with Google+, as said earlier, online sharing will never be exactly the same again. The firstfeature this particular Google project has unveiled is known as Circles. To put it simply, consider it thecommunities feature on Facebook except better. All youve got to do is to basically drag and drop thecontacts or friends to the Circle of your liking. The main difference between the Facebook groups andCircles is the ease of sharing everything. This is done via a toolbar, which is still within the works though,that can be accessed on the top portion of your own web page.
  • 2. Another of the unveiled Google+ features is called ‘Sparks’. This looks like a search bar in which youenter your interest of preference plus it populates it with things, i.e. websites, video clips, blogs, thatyou may desire. Then you can choose those that you find actually interesting and save it on your Googleprofile for sharing later on. You can also notice what other individuals are interested in and discussing inthe sort-of-a public area called ‘Featured Interests’.You may also upload photos as soon as they are taken with a feature and a new app called ‘InstantUpload’ and these will be saved for sharing later on. Also, there is a group online messaging applicationwhich they intend to integrate across numerous platforms, including Android and iPhones, called‘Huddle’. This really is excellent for immediate discussions together with your Circles.One more great feature out of this new Google plus is called ‘Hangouts’, and through the looks from it,this may be the one to revolutionize group video chatting. This is because the system behind this featurecan smartly identify the active people in the video chat and focus on them. This eliminates probably themost annoying issues with group video conversation.Work in ProgressClearly this new social network website is still a work happening. You can find admittedly some kinksthat need to be worked out, such as issues of redundancy throughout databases of the different Googlewebsites and such. However, those that have been fortunate to have tried it seem to be pleased withthe Google product or service. One more feature that has come up that appears to be lacking in theGoogle project is social networking games. There is still little word if thered be a Google+ Gamesfeature, however the website still has a long way to go. There’s no reason to cry foul just yet.Google+ is shaping up to be probably the greatest social networking sites, and Google is not evenconstructing the buzz too much just yet. Google is positive enough that this work theyre preparing intoGoogle Plus will yield a product or service which will be a legend among social network innovations.Google+ is turning out to be a genuine game changer in the social networking scene, and everybody isexcitedly expecting its entrance.
