Google Introduces Google+, A Social Network To Compete With Facebook

Search giant Google has introduced a new social network called Google+ to compete with the world’s most popular social network, Facebook. This is not the first time Google is introducing Social Network as they already have Google Buzz and Orkut. But this time Google has come up with something more beautiful and a new Facebook-style social network Called Google +.

The network is very similar to Facebook in structure but with beautiful and super design. Let’s take a look at the features along with videos to see what Google is offering;

Google + Project: A quick look
Google + is a new social service that allows people to share thoughts with friends, share photos, upload videos, share links, spread news and more.

+Circles allows people to categorize their relationships with other people. By allowing to sort friends into different “circles”, they can then assign different data to each circle. 


Sparks delivers a feed of highly contagious content from across the Internet. On any topic you want, in over 40 languages. Simply add your interests, and you’ll always have something to watch, read and share—with just the right circle of friends:


With Google+ we wanted to make on-screen gatherings fun, fluid and serendipitous, so we created Hangouts. By combining the casual meetup with live multi-person video, Hangouts lets you stop by when you’re free, and spend time with your Circles. Face-to-face-to-face:


These days a phone is the perfect sharing accessory: it’s always with you, it’s always online, and it’s how we stay close with our closest friends. We didn’t want “just” a mobile experience, however, so with Google+ we focused on things (like GPS, cameras, and messaging) to make your pocket computer even more personal.


Coordinating with friends and family in real-time is really hard in real life. After all, everyone’s on different schedules, in different places, and plans can change at any moment. Phone calls and text messages can work in a pinch, but they’re not quite right for getting the gang together. So Google+ includes Huddle, a group messaging experience that lets everyone inside the circle know what’s going on, right this second.

Do you think Google+ can take over Facebook? You can take a tour of Google+ here.
