Google Introduces Their Social Network Service

submitted on July 5, 2011 by HouTex in "Sales / Promotions"

According to http://gigjets.com/07/google-i.....vitations/ and other reports
This social network from the search engine giant is known as Google+ or Google Plus, and it is obvious that it is going to be a tough competitor mainly to Facebook which is currently dominant in this business. According to Google, Google+ will not just be limited to sharing videos, photos, comments, etc. but would bring ‘real-world interactions’ and ‘real-life sharing.’


The Google+ project was announced in the Google Blog at http://googleblog.blogspot.com.....-life.html

Components include:

+Circles: share what matters, with the people who matter most; share selectively using circles.


+Sparks: strike up a conversation, about pretty much anything, using a feed of highly contagious content from across the Internet. Add your interests on any topic (in over 40 languages) and share with just the right circle of friends.


+Hangouts
: 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.


+Mobile: add your location to every post, and instant photo uploads. While you're snapping pictures, and with your permission, Google+ adds your photos to a private album in the cloud.


+Huddle: a group messaging experience that lets everyone inside the circle know what's going on, in real time.


Google+ has been available by invitation only for testing, but you can be among the first to know when it's open to everyone - https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googleplus/


Check it out at https://plus.google.com/up/start/?sw=1&type=st
or take an interactive tour - tour link http://www.google.com/+/demo/



An app for the Android platform is already available at https://market.android.com/det......apps.plus

    I don't think I can handle another Social Network. It will be interesting to watch and see how far it goes.

    It is still "invites only" as far as I can see.

      I think they're between the invite stage and the launch.
      So all you can do today is enter your email address to be notified when it's open.
      We've temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon.

    I'm ready to move from Facebook to Google +
    I'm sick of so many ads there.

    Google world domination will have nearly reached fruition if this network becomes successful. Twisted
