Heard that Google+ is the new and improved Facebook? Or, in math terms: Google+ ≥ Facebook. Well, not exactly.

If you have yet to score a coveted invite to the Google+ party, you may feel left out and confused about the hype. Luckily, the cool kids at PC Mag got on the guest list and offer a report from inside on the six things Google+ offers than Facebook doesn’t.

A sampling:

    A simple, easy-to-use option for sharing photos and post with select friends.
    Multi-user video chat
    Tune in to a YouTube video in real time with friends
    View curated content based on interests
    Upload photos and videos to cloud without publishing publicly
    Quit

Google's new social network Google+ is going head-to-head with the biggest social network of them all, Facebook.

But for Google's new platform to succeed in gaining social market share, it has to also entice users by letting them do new things, too, stuff they can't do in Facebook.

After the lackluster reception of Google Buzz and Wave, the Internet giant had to completely rethink its approach to online social interaction before announcing Google+. And it has. Google+, which is still in a trial phase and not yet open to all, steps back from the friend-accumulation game and instead considers how we, as social human creatures, already think about our friends. The outcome is cliques, or what Google is calling Circles. In real life, friends come in mini sub-groups, usually based on how we met.

Google Facebook

Almost—but not all—of the new and exciting ideas that Google has germinating in Google+ come down to cliques, or friends grouping off into smaller subsets. That's a radical departure from Facebook, which does have some ability to put friends into different buckets, but not in a way that's central to the overall experience. From there, Google+'s innovation comes in the form of how these circles of friends interact: video, mobile group chats, sharing and discussing content only within a circle that has a shared interest, and so on. What has Google dreamed up that Facebook, after several years in the big leagues, hasn't? We found six big ideas that may very well rock the social networking boat.
