Facebook’s Competitor: Google+ Project

Facebook recently announced they are at 750 million users world wide. That’s one massive user base. Who could compete with that?

Google.

Today Google announces their new social networking effort, Google+ Project.

Here’s What We Know

From what we’ve seen so far, it looks really slick. They are taking a much more personal look into how and who you connect with. Along with that, they are forming small “social events” you normally take place in.

Circles

You share different things with different people. So 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

Tell Sparks what you’re into and it will send you stuff it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something cool to watch, read, or share.

Hangouts

With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let specific buddies (or entire circles) know you’re hanging out and then see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until teleportation arrives, it’s the next best thing.

Huddle

Texting is great, but not when you’re trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle turns all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page all at once. Your thumbs will thank you.

Beta access is already closed for access to Google Plus. Within minutes, they halted the sign up form and there’s still no word on when it will be accessible again. Until then check out the interactive tour and videos.
