Google's Answer to FaceBook - The Google Plus Project

By: DoYouknow.IN | Views: 1577 | Date: 29-Jun-2011

Google has announced today the launch of its answer to Facebook, a social networking service called Google Plus.

In a monumental announcement rivaling Microsoft’s release of its Office 365 cloud computing service, Google has announced today the launch of its answer to Facebook, a social networking service called Google Plus

Looking to bridge what has become the gold standard in web search functionality with social networking, Google has designed a social networking system somewhat similar to what is already out there, but incorporating a number key differences and new features: chiefly a design based around social circles, called plus circles and a Twitter inspired feature. 

Google Plus

Attempting to more closely resemble real life, social interaction, it allows users to selectively share with specific groups within defined circles, rather than sharing with all their social connections at once. You can create as many circles as you like, for whatever categories you want adding friends and contacts simply by clicking and dragging names into your various circles.

The Twitter inspired feature allows you to follow certain people without actually adding them to your friends list. Google is also featuring a web conferencing option with room for up to ten people to join in at a time. A feature called, Sparks, provides the user with trending Web content on various topics, like sports or fashion, allowing the user to subscribe to categories of interest, create custom categories, and share content with friends. 

Google will also be releasing Google Plus mobile apps for the Android smartphones and iPhone, with special features like cloud based photo storage and group messaging.

Google plus, located at plus.google.com, is currently in trial mode with a limited number of people, but has stated on its site that it won’t be long before the Google Plus project is ready for everyone.
