Google's Facebook

In the trial stage by invitation only, Google is testing its Facebook. Its version, which, I think will be far better. The problem with Facebook is that everyone who a friend to you will see everything you post, which at times, we only wish a few to see.

Thus, Google uses circles that a user creates on the fly. Inside the circle are only those friends the user designates and when you post a message for that circle of friends, only they see it and can respond. Why didn't FB think of it? Not every message one creates is for all 200 of your friends, nor should it be. Half the time what my friends write are not remotely interesting to me.

The name of the social network is, Google +, which only started in Feb. 2010. For example. one could create a circle of friends called, Shoppers, an include those friends interested in shopping. Thus, if you want to see who is available to shop with or come across some hot deal, only those in that circle will see the message and can respond. Photos and videos will also upload instantly from Android phones.

Google research found that having a lot of friends actually hinders the user when writing in FB because you have consider who will be reading it. Maybe there are some that do not need to. Also, what could possibly one say that would be of interest to all 500 of your so-called friends?

The new social network will also allow users to have video chats that one can talk and see instantly.

I had heard alot about google plus, but not this many details. Thanks! Do you think it will get popular and last awhile like facebook or will people lose interest in it like myspace?

It sounds like a good idea but I think they need to roll it out faster as its been talked about for a while but I've seen it only rarely on sites which reduces its effectiveness.
