Google+

               Google is trying its hand again at social networking by launching a service called Google+. Google claims its new service is a dramatic rethinking of traditional social networking paradigms where, Google says, there's no good way to define our various types of friendships--and share information accordingly.

Circles: Sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life. Sparks:  looks for videos and articles it thinks we’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something to watch, read, and share. Hangouts: Bumping into friends while you’re out and about is one of the best parts of going out and about. With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let buddies know you’re hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until we perfect teleportation, it’s the next best thing. Instant Upload: Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone and on to the web is pretty much the opposite of fun. That’s why we created Instant Upload: so that from now on, your photos upload themselves. Huddle: Texting is great, but not when you’re trying get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle takes care of it by turning all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page long before thumbs get sore.
