Finally Google, the search giant of the world wide web, has launched its contender Google Plus in the world of social networking. The Google Plus Project is a powerful answer to the social networking world currently dominated by Facebook and Twitter. The Project aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life. Not only it emphasizes on basic, human way of socializing but also aims in safeguarding the privacy of the user, which was a major issue surrounding Facebook.
Google Plus came out with flying colors and also added some new jargons in our social dictionary. These are Circles, Hurdles, Hangouts and Sparks. Let’s have a look at them individually.
This is one of the biggest advantages of Google+ above Facebook. While in Facebook a user was allowed to sort his friend in lists, the functionalities and capabilities of these lists were limited. However in Google, the circles concept make it easier for you to sort your contacts as per your relation with them and also helps to update the stream discretely.
To sort your contacts in Circles all you need to do is drag and drop them on a particular circle at Google Circles. You can also remove a contact by dragging one out of a circle and dropping it any where on the page, except any another circle. The contact are added and deleted from the circle with a fascinating animation.
Note: You can add a contact in more than one circle.
