Google+ Versus Facebook

Well, it appears a new social network has arrived and seemingly rivals the coolness of Facebook. The name of the network? Google+.

Obviously, Google+ hails from the Internet giant Google. Not so obvious is what exactly the network is meant to do and why they have decided to go up against Facebook (who recently added a new Skype feature to its chat function). Google+ is circle-driven, meaning it turns all of Google into a social networking platform and allows users to integrate sharing into all of its other functions. What's even better is it allows certain types of information to be shared with certain groups that you yourself create (i.e., family, friends, co-workers, etc.). Perhaps the coolest feature of all, however, is the fact that through Google+ it is said one can chat with up to ten people at once.

Have you joined the site? Will you? Are you even on Facebook? Share your thoughts if you feel so inclined. I can tell you that I am not on the network and don't think I'll join too soon, but, as they say, never say never.
