5 Great Google+ Features

After all the begging and the waiting, I finally got an invitation to Google+ and frankly, I must say that I am very impressed with what they have done so far!

So, what are the features that make Google+ this attractive? And why is it being called the “social backbone” of the web these days?

  • Circles: Google has come up with the exclusive concept of circles — you can create a circle of contacts that are family, friends, work friends, former co-workers and so on. With these circles, you can define who gets to see what kind of updates. If you are a Facebook user, you will see that this features is still unavailable and rolling it out now is a bit too late!
  • Hangout: It is essentially group video chat done in a unique and different way; all you need to do is click on the Hangout button and invite members of a certain group by sending them a notification. Moreover, Google uses its own platform to perform this rather than a third party.
