What Is Google+?

Jul 1, 2011
Official Google+ Logo Google Plus Info - Google+ (also known as Google Plus), is a new social media service launched by Google Inc. to answer the needs of Facebook users who have limited space, security, and privacy.

Google+ network is almost the same as Facebook and Google's latest news plus more features that make it more complete. The question now is can Google+ beat Facebook?

Google+ launched on June 28, 2011 in an invite-only testing phase. The following day, existing users were allowed to invite friends, who are above 18 years of age, to the service to create their own accounts. However, this was quickly suspended a day after there was "insane demand" for accounts.

Google+ integrates social services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and introduces new services Circles, Hangouts, Sparks, and Huddles. Google+ will also be available as a desktop application and as a mobile application, but only on Android and iOS operating systems. Sources such as The New York Times have declared it Google's biggest attempt to rival the social network Facebook, which had over 750 million users in 2011.

But what would happen if we talk to teachers or lecturers for example? Of course, our speech and language patterns will be more polite to them.
