Google+ Social Media Network

Google+ is a rival social media network to facebook, another social media platfome to keep up with? I hear you all sigh but it’s worth doing as there are some really cool features on there and a different way of interacting with other people and networking.

There are a lot of new terms to understand such as Huddles, Circles, Sparks and Hangouts. Here’s what they all do:

Circles
The easiest way to share some things with college buddies, others with your parents and almost nothing with your boss.

Hangouts
Let friends know that you’re free for a video hangout, any time, anywhere. Then catch up, watch YouTube or… just hangout.

Sparks
A feed of only the things that you’re really into, so when you’re free, there’s always something waiting to be watched, read or shared.

Huddle
Huddle is a new way for you to easily stay in touch while you’re on the go. With Huddle, you can text groups of people or individual friends in Google+ Mobile. When you receive a new message in Huddle, Google+ sends a push notification to your phone.

At the moment it is still in beta phase and you can’t get an invite to join for love nor money! However I don’t think it will be too long before the doors are cast open and the world is invited in to play.

For the moment though, here is a video to give you an idea of what its all going to be about!

I get the distinct feeling, facebook will be sleeping uneasy for a while until they see the impact that google plus is going to have on their business …
