Google experiments with social media have largely ended with a particularly annoying noise - Buzz has been a security nightmare, the wave was incomprehensible, and Orkut only popular in Brazil, for some reason. But Google is nothing if not determined, and today announced its largest ever social pressure: Google +. Undoubtedly, similar to Facebook, at first, but it is not fundamentally different underlying idea Google + separating the package. Facebook was an outcrop of networks such as MySpace and dating websites - centered on the profile page. Google +, however, is a distribution of the motor.
Google + is, despite this difference, especially Google riff on Facebook. It may not seem like anything new at first, but it's a great idea and implemented in a myriad of properties of Google, Gmail in particular, on a scale never seen before. Facebook was an outcrop of networks such as MySpace and dating sites - focused on the profile page. Google + is a common motor. Google describes the main content + Google shares: It is designed to allow you to share status updates, links, videos, and other with exactly who you want.
To this end, Google has created "Circles" which are essentially groups that are placed in certain classes of people - family, friends, colleagues, that sort of thing. Sharing is for these environments, rather than everyone in their social network (which may include peers, parents, EXE, and other undesirables). The layout of the circles is quite nice, removing a contact from a circle of explosions in a cloud of smoke, you are free to add your laser noise. The interface has historically been a weak spot in Google, as many owners of Android (or enemies) will tell, but the chief designer for Google + is a developer of the first Apple seems to overcome misfortunes Google design.
There are other ways to communicate with a group of people:
This is an instant messaging service and type of small group video chat service that allows you to jump spontaneously called the meeting places in the group video chats. This last feature is definitely something we have not seen before, and is emblematic of the new strategy: Google: Google wants you to spend as much time as possible in Google +, rather than the traditional method for Google to enter and out of their data quickly.
Then there is a feature called Sparks, which is like a new automated wireless - add to their interests, and gives a stream of things that may have to, like StumbleUpon, then you can share with those you want. Probably, Google Reader, Google RSS reader is a web application that has a lot of Google + sharing options. Sparks will run with your cash benefits (updates and items shared by people you know), even if Google does not exclude the son combination in the future.
Your network created by users of Google, but you can add a person, even if they do not want to use Google +. Just add an email address with a circle and no one can be e-mailed updates like everyone else. This amazing in-depth look at the birth of Google + Facebook integration is not in the cards - apparently, Facebook is not willing to work with a competitor obvious.
Google+ is all about Google Android on the part (and soon iPhone) App, you'll see a link to the Google+ page when using online services next to Google search link, maps, reader, and everything else.
Located in a small private beta for now, Google is working on the folds to avoid another situation of buzz. But this is an important part of the identity of Google from now - if we are to believe the hype, is not only a new application. This is a new direction for Google itself. People to use ... well, it remains to be seen.
