Google sure does know how to start a website because Google+ has taken a toll in popularity within its first week of launch. Due to which the creators had to disable the invite option.
There are already a billion users testing out the beta version of the software and more are expected to flow in.
Facebook and Twitter have been facing issues such as your home page full of stuff from people you hardly know. The best way to make your homepage absolutely clutter free and truly personal is by switching to this network on demand, Google+.
Obviously social networks are meant for socializing but then there are things that you’d want to keep personal. Facebook, unfortunately, despite its “privacy” concern has showed very little interest towards the issue; in fact, Google+ has won the privacy case here.
This is basically a simulation of “lists” from Facebook and “follow” from Twitter. You can follow whoever you wish; people from all over the planet or simply your close friends.
No matter what your “status” (in Facebook terms) may be, you can share with whoever you like. You can choose from close ones such as family, friends, acquaintances, or everyone. The “circle” you select will be viewing your posts.
Using Google is like using Facebook or Twitter with privacy controls. In case, you follow somebody you do not really know too well then you simply put him up against a certain circle named anonymous and hide all your private posts from them.
You can be a part of the world and at the same time adopt privacy controls as and when you wish to.
This is a video hangout; something like what Facebook and Skype have integrated to produce. But, that’s still not as good as Google+’s Hangout. You can select whoever you want to have a video chat with; similar to “status” posting options.
A fun-ner part of Google+ Hangout is that while you’re at it, anybody who’s online can join in to make it quite an interesting video call.
It’s not always easy to plan a get together with friends who’re distant or are busy with their routines and lives. Hence, Hangout will help you get together and have a blast at the same time.
Do you have interests that aren’t easily available on the internet? Don’t fret; with Google+’s Sparks you can see all your interests lining up in front of you. This way you and your friends can have heated debates and arguments over the Sparks.
There are various other things that have emerged with Google+ on the face of social networking.
This black bar at the top of your page can take you to inbox, documents, news, calendars and whatever you need to access in just one click.
You mail is integrated with Google+; whatever takes place in your social network such as someone adding you up on their circle or the like, you get notified immediately. In fact, you can begin with your interaction right from there.
When your circles use +1 it enhances your search results. This can also be taken as the “Like” button off Facebook but the links you pick off +1 they do not appear on the main stream which is why this is considered good since all your +1 links would otherwise end up on all streams. And, this may end up people asking for a “-1” button; we do not want that, already.
The +ing is an option that helps you embed a friend or certain someone’s name on your post so that you both can share an idea or a discussion topic.
Google knows how to start a website and has always worked to the benefit of its users and not even one feedback has ever been ignored. They make sure that all issues and concerns are dealt with immediately.
Google+, however, is currently working on an invite basis and if you’re willing to try it out then, make sure you do not miss out on any invite you accidentally receive from an acquaintance, perhaps. And rest of the social networking sites can take a page out of Google’s book to learn how to start a website and with a bang.
