Google+, The new Social Network?

Move over Facebook and Myspace (If you’re still a social network), Google is making their way to the social network business with Google+, a new service aimed toward reshaping the way people interact and share information online.

Now before we go any further, I’m not saying that google’s social network, “Google+” is going to replace Facebook at all. I mean it could be possible being as it is “Google”, but this project that google has going on for the next “social network” is in fact…a project and just like any other project there are going to be a few bugs here and there to start off with, but with time and the right advertising we might see Google+ be the next social network to play and share with.

Now let’s get to the facts of this thing, Google has posted on their Official Blog that Google+ is a network that has what other social networks are missing “Current social networking services don’t provide users with a large enough degree of control when sharing status updates, links, and media, but Google+ will streamline selective sharing with features like Circles.

Circles

+Circles: share what matters, with the people who matter most
Everyone doesn’t has to know everything! “Circles” allows you share the information you want to share with the people you only want to share it with. There’s no real reason why your grandparents should know when your getting your ass drunk….most of the time.

Sparks

+Sparks: strike up a conversation, about pretty much anything

Simply share and add your interests from the web, and you’ll always have something to watch, read and share—with just the right circle of friends.

Huddle

Coordinating with friends and family in real-time is really hard in real life. After all, everyone’s on different schedules, in different places, and plans can change at any moment. Phone calls and text messages can work in a pinch, but they’re not quite right for getting the gang together. So Google+ includes Huddle, a group messaging experience that lets everyone inside the circle know what’s going on, right this second.

Google+ is still currently under beta and at the moment is invite only, but If you’re as interested about the service as I am, you can sign up to know when you can start making circles of your own.
