Google+ (Google Plus)

Google+ (Google Plus) is Google's attempt at social networking. The Google+ service that delivers functionality and many features similar to those of Facebook

Features in Google+ include "Posts" for posting status updates, "Circles" for sharing information with different groups of people (like Facebook Groups), "Sparks" for offering videos and articles users might like, and "Hangouts" and "Huddles" for video chatting with a friend or group of friends.

Google+ follows the company's earlier social networking endeavors, including the short-lived Google Wave, which Google discontinued in early 2010.  Google+ is expected to expand to a larger audience as the project matures.
