What is Google Plus ?


Google Plus is the latest social networking site which is released by Google. From its past failures, Google decided to create a best social networking site which will occupy the market of social networking. So, Google decided to take a different approach towards social networking. With Google plus, users can connect and interact with people who are in their contacts in a social way. Google has given top most preference to security, as many social networks are lacking in this concern.

Comparison between Google Plus and Facebook


Google vs Facebook When compared to Facebook, Google has done a better job in thinking out of the box of social networks. Facebook lacks in Voice/Video chat when compared to the the Hangout feature in Google Plus.

At this stage, Google plus is short on features. We can't find a fan page in Google plus which attracts a lot of users in Facebook. Facebook pages are great for attracting millions of fan following.

In grouping friends, Facebook is far away from Google. Google's Circle approach is top approach for Google plus.

Third party API's, and other applications are not yet available in Google plus. In Facebook users love to play games and other time killing applications. Till know we can't find those in Google Plus.

At this stage, it will be very tough to compare Google Apps and Facebook

The best thing I like with Google+ are:

1. Ability to follow others without forcing them to follow you
2. Ability to be in the circles of others without adding them to your circles
3. Share your messages to the selected groups (circles)

And here comes the most important one:

In Facebook, if you are not smart, your data is public! I could never figure out how someone in FB came to know some of my details!

If Google, to screw up yourself, you must be smart. If you are not smart, your data is protected by default.
