Google+ Tackles Facebook with Circles & Sparks!

Google has launched a new platform called 'Google+' which takes Facebook head-on (again). But this time Google may have got it right.

  • By addressing privacy issues with its innovative 'Circles', Google+ lets you control which of your friends see your photos, posts, etc.
  • The Sparks feature lets you stay up to date on any topic, pulling search results from Google like a news reader.
  • And Hangouts is basically video-conferencing, allowing up to 10 people connect.
  • Android phone users get an added bonus with Huddles (group-chatting within your Circles).
Google+ is still considered a 'project' and you have to be invited to join by someone who is already a member.

Keep an eye on the Google+ website to see when they open registration.

Read more about the pros and cons of Google+ in David Pogue's NY Times article Google+ Gets a Leg Up on Facebook.
