Google+ is the new social networking site by Google which can be a competitor to Facebook. Google+ is adding some new stuff to make sharing online more like sharing in real life. Some of the first key features include:
- Instant Upload
Circles help sharing the right stuff with the right people. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself – just like real life.Hangouts
With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let specific buddies (or entire circles) know you’re hanging out and then see who drops by for a face-to-face chat. Until teleportation arrives, it’s the next best thing.Instant Upload
With Instant Upload, your photos and videos upload themselves automatically, to a private album on Google+. All you have to do is decide who to share them with.Sparks
Tell Sparks what you’re into and it will send you stuff it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something cool to watch, read, or share. A feed of only the things that you're really into, so when you're free, there's always something waiting to be watched, read or shared.Huddle
Huddle turns all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page all at once. Your thumbs will thank you.
Will Google+ stand out of the herd and be a competitor(threat) to Facebook and overtake it? Let’s wait and watch. Also post your thoughts as comments below.
