Google has been working very hard to create a product that値l compete against the rapidly-growing Facebook threat. This new service is called Google+ and it was just launched today by Google with very little details.
The application痴 use and method is a little complicated. Google+ is a series of groups, called Circles; trending topics, called Sparks; group chat (including video), called Hangouts; and mobile, which includes location-based services, instant upload of photos, and Huddle (more group chat).
This service is currently limited to a few selected people that are a part of the beta program. It値l be released soon hopefully, but I have a feeling that this might be like every other attempt Google throws at Facebook 紡 major fail.
