    Facebook VS Google + The Race Has Begun on 7th July 2011



    Google has recently launched a social network service that is Google+ which is considered to be the biggest rival of Facebook. Google is also known as king of internet search engines. Just like Facebook you can share messages, comments and pictures but in addition it offers some exciting features like circles, hangout, sparks, huddle etc.

    On Jul 7, bloggers and technology sites reported that Google again allowed users to join Google+. For few hours, the search giant opened the Google Plus doors and allowed its users to invite their friends to join the new 'Facebook Killer'. But the 'Grand Opening' lasted only for few hours and Google closed the doors.
    ‘Circle’ allows you to add new friends in the group to whom you can share different content like pictures or messages.

    The best thing about it is that you can define who can view your updates. Google says that “It gives you the option of separating your Friends from Just Friends, Relatives, Family and of course your boss.”
    ‘Spark’ unites the people in a group who have common interests. This feature lets you choose from a list of interests or to enter your own specific interest. Then it gathers all relevant content from the web about that topic and allows you to control which circle views what content.‘Huddle’ is a type of group messaging. Just like Facebook, it allows you to make a group chat.‘Hangout’ is the most exciting feature of Google+ that could be a possible killer of Facebook.

    This feature allows the users to have a video chat whether in form of group or between two people. You can create hangouts of up to 10 people.
    Besides the above listed four features, there are other features like Stream which is similar to your Facebook newsfeeds. Another important feature is the instant upload. The photos and videos from your mobile can be shared instantly. You can take a photo and it uploads to your Picasa or YouTube account and then you can share those photos and videos via Google+ to specific “circles.”


    Facebook has 700+ million users till date where the Google+ did not launched worldwide but its exciting new features raise the question that who will win the race? Google+ is just not open for all public but just has launched on invitation basis. Initially Google+ has allowed 150 invitation for every member, well in my point of view its also a marketing
    strategy to attract more users to build a social linked network unlike Facebook where anyone can signup and create login. Also Google+ is just application free system which is making it more popular so far in my point of view. News also arise that Google+ is Adding Games From Zynga Rovio to Its Social-Networking Service
