Google plus

  1. 1. The story so far• Google launches Google+, calls it a social project – “Real-life sharing rethought for the web”• Launched by invitation only. Each person got 15 additional invites to send.• Once logged into Google account, Google+ can be accessed from the new black Google navigation toolbar• Main area is Stream which shows new posts/comments• Initial features – Circles, Hangouts, Sparks, Huddles (mobile)• Unlike Facebook/LinkedIn there is no invitation process
  2. 2. Stream• Similar to Facebook Newsfeed and Twitter timeline – Posts with most recent comments rise to the top• The ‘Share whats new box’ is for updates. – Updates can be plain text with images, videos, links and can be tagged with location – Can be shared publicly, or only with specific Circles
  3. 3. Photos• Photos are arranged by source – Circles, Phone. Albums shows uploaded photos, including those in existing Blogger posts• Photos or Videos taken via phone can be set up for instantly uploading to Google+• Photos can be tagged easily a la FB. Settings can be adjusted to approve when someone tags you
  4. 4. Profile• Here’s where you can view how your profile looks to different people – those in your circle or Anyone on the web• New content or persons added to Circles start to show up in profiles with time
  5. 5. Circles• Connection can be added to separate buckets – the idea being to offer better segregation and privacy instead of Facebook’s mass broadcast approach• Share different updates/content with different people• Only the creator knows which circle other people are put in• Unlike Facebook users don’t have to accept Friend invitations
  6. 6. Hangouts• Group Video chat (up to 10 participants)• Screen switching feature changes to show participant speaking• Users can also view a YouTube video together and see reactions• Great for business conferencing, webinars
  7. 7. Sparks• Surfaces content from around the web. Find areas of interest quickly• Allows sharing of content with your circle or publicly or via e-mail
  8. 8. Google+ for Android• Quick & Simple to use for a first version• Huddle is a nifty feature for Group Messaging• Instant Picture Upload allows camera images to be sent to a cloud album• Locations can be tagged to check-ins and images and are astoundingly accurate
  9. 9. First Thoughts• Slick user interface. Simple to understand features.• Will have high appeal for geeks, Android owners, technophiles, blogger types.• Circles is the key differentiator from other social networks• No way to directly import Facebook contacts (indirect via Yahoo)• Has features to take on every other network but creates no new niche.• Clear privacy options. Have learned from Buzz mistake.• Hangouts could be a break-out feature depending upon what Skype- Facebook announce this week.• Should have launched with business profile pages too.• Not sure it holds enough incentive for the average Facebook user to set up account and port data across.• Your public Google Profile shows your public posts/photos & Circles unlike Facebook. Should be more options to customize it.
