By now, you might have heard about the new social networking service from Google called Google+ which is generating a lot of buzz and forcing Facebook to make some quick announcements. Google+ now has over 40 million users, who from reviews all over the web are generally happy with the service. Having used Google+ for sometime now, I will like to join them in giving Google+ a pass mark.

Google+ stream

Google+ design is great offering a good user experience, better than Facebook, if you ask me. Your ability to share content to one or more select groups called Circles is one of the most distinctive feature of Google+. Another interesting feature is that Google+ added Twitter’s following concept as a Circle, allowing you to add people you are interested in like celebrities and other people you admire.

Once you follow a person, their public updates will be visible on your stream, whether or not they add you to their Circle, just like on Twitter. If a user wants to share content only with people in their Circle, they can easily do that. You can also easily find and share popular posts on Google+ using the What’s Hot feature.

This makes Google+ easier for celebrities, from a user experience point of view. You do not have to manage two separate profiles, one for personal life were you share with close friends and family and another for fans like you do on Facebook. Google+ puts everything in one place offering a better experience. The following circle is a good place to put people you are interested in and wish to be getting updates from them (like me).

The Google+ video chat area called Hangouts was so good that Facebook had to quickly form an alliance with Skype to launch a video chat feature of their own.

Also Google+ is integrated to other Google services, bringing the whole of Google services a click away. So, Google+ like the name implies is an extension of Google itself.

Google+ is now available for iPhone and Android phones, plus a Google+ mobile for other phones.
