My Take on Google+…So Far
Google+ is Google’s latest stab at creating a social platform to rival Facebook. Unlike Facebook, where all your connections are “friends” and the tools provided for making connections and sharing are very rigid, Google+ will allow for greater flexibility and customization.
The new social platform has experience growth of 20 million users in the first three weeks since its launch (Facebook was founded in February 2004 and currently has an estimated 750 million users).
