Google+

A Google project headed by Vic Gundotra and Bradley Horowitz, Google+ is designed to be the social extension of Google.

Its features focus on making online sharing easy for users.

  • “Circles,” think social circles, akin to Facebook’s lists.

  • “Sandbar,” a user-unifying toolbar.

  • “Sparks,” a search engine for sharing content between users.

  • “Messenger,” a group messaging app that allows users to share with certain “Circles.”

  • “Hangouts,” group video chatting designed to allow up to 10 users video chat at once.

Each Google+ user can replace his or her standard Google profile which will stream everything that user has shared as well as the +1 content. The +1 button is similar to a Facebook “like.”
