Google+ is a new Google operated social networking platform launched on June 28, 2011. All the people aged 18 or above can be invited by the existing users of Google+. Google+ will be available shortly as a desktop application and on handsets which are Android operated and systems which are iOS operated. The New York Times has declared it to be Google’s biggest attempt to beat the market of their biggest rival Facebook.
Google+ has come up with new features like Circles, Hangouts, Huddles, Instant Upload, Sparks, Stream and the “+1” button.
“Circles” allow the users to form groupings in their friends list. Other users may view these groups or they may not according to the privacy set by the group authors.
“Hangouts” allow the users to have a video chat with 10 other users around. These users most likely will be from Google+ but in addition Google+ will allow external users to take part in the video chat if they have the related URL of the chat page.


“Huddles” allow communication across iPhone, Android and SMS in circles.
“Instant Upload” allows users to share photos and videos through a phone but this feature is restricted to Android OS phones only.
“Sparks” features the most searched items across Google+ so that the users may share them if they want to.
“Stream” features the news feed, which means it includes all the updates from circles. This is similar to Facebook’s news feed.
Google+ allows the users to recommend the items they like by clicking on +1 button on different sharing.
Google+ is praised by many technicians and developers. They see Google+ as the upcoming social network which will take over the crowd of Internet media in a short while. Celebrities are still not biting the Google+ bug but it is hoped that they will come soon, after all two weeks isn’t much time to predict sites success.
