  2. 2. As I’m sure you are aware, Google has launched it’s very own social network to rival the likes of Facebook and Twitter. The slick and simple profiles allow you to separate your contacts into circles consisting of people in similar areas in relation to you. <br />People are still finding their feet in this site, so we have decided to produce a list of the most important tips for setting up your Google+ account!<br />If you read and comment on this post, you will get an invite to Google+ from us at Xposure! <br />So enjoy the post!<br />
