There’s alot of chatter about Google+ and Google+1 right now, so we thought that you might like some quick summary and a few links to follow to learn more…
Google+ is Google’s big picture answer to Social Networking. They say its “Real life sharing, rethought for the web.”
In Google+ you’ll see features like “Circles,” ‘Sparks,” “Hangouts” and “Huddles” – it has a very collegiate feel to it. When you read more about each feature though, you do find that is goes beyond Facebook in many ways. Its kind of hybrid of a micro-social space with Facebook and instant messaging features – throw some cool YouTube and Flickr elements and you’ve got Google+.
Here are some links to give you more information:
• Google+ Project
• Mashable: Google+; The Pros & Cons
• Soshable: 7 Reasons Why Google+ Will Succeed (and 1 reason why it will very likely fail)
Hopefully Google+ will show true value instead of becoming just another social space you have to try and manage.
We’ll keep you posted on what we think…
