The Google+ Project

Google has just launched it's Social Networking Service Google+.


Hope this doesn't turn out to be another Google wave...

What makes it fascinating is that in here you can create niche “circles” (groups) for specific purposes. Unlike Facebook, you don't have to accept all "friends" into one large network and share information that at times may be irrelevant to many of them. Once you have created a ”circles”, you can actually talk anything under the sun without your other friends or family knowing about it and you can easily exchange pictures or information without the need of a Private Message.

It also has "hangouts" feature that allows you to video chat with up to 10 people at once. Not like Facebook's new video chat feature, which requires you to initiate a call, Google Plus lets you tell specific people or entire circles that you are "hanging out" and invite them to join you for a face-to-face chat. Google plus “Hangouts” feature also foster group video chats so that you can enjoy a group conference.

And in just a matter of days Google Plus has become one of the top 10 referrers of traffic to TechCrunch, a top technology blog.

Very interesting project for Google...
