What is Google+ ?

google plusAll the hype has been around Google+ lately. Some say that it could surpass the popularity of Facebook. Google plus is Google’s latest social network development that is similar to Facebook in which you can upload photos and write posts. One really special thing about Google Plus is that you can create what is called “circles.” You can separate your contacts into your own custom circles. For example, you can create a “business contacts” circle, and a “college friends” circle. There is no limit to the amount of circles you can create either. Privacy settings are said to be a lot easier than Facebook’s too.
