The public unveiling of Google+

Google has officially launched its social networking site Google+ to the public following its twelve week invitation-only trial.

With Facebook and Twitter having 800 million and 100 million members respectively, Google has ensured that there is interest surrounding its social networking site with a trial period where only a select few could use and comment on Google+ and its special features. People will now be able to explore the Circles, Sparks and Hangouts extras for themselves following the official launch of Google+.

Google has created a social networking site with the aim to better online communication. The Official Google Blog stated: “We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests.” Google+ includes previously unseen features that help to emulate real-life friendships on an online platform. Users will be able to categorise their contacts and share information with select circles, spark up interesting conversations with the help of Google and video chat with their friends.

An inevitable success?

The public unveiling of the widely discussed Google+ is set to result in many people signing up to experiment with the innovative features. Adrian Mursec, senior developer at theEword, stated: “The development of a complex social platform that makes online communication an even richer experience could result in Facebook and Twitter becoming less used, similar to the previous Myspace saga. However the popularity of Facebook, which constantly updates in order to keep fresh, could mean that people stick with what they know.”
