Google Plus Videos

Google’s been working on some new stuff to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life. Google+ is currently in field trial mode, with a select group of people outside of Google’s staff invited to put the social media software through its paces. As the editor of The Inspiration Room I’ve had the privilege of looking around inside and so far it’s looking good. The capacity to develop circles of contacts makes a lot of sense, mirroring but perhaps strengthening the capacity already built into Facebook and Apple’s contacts. The video conferencing Hangout takes the visual interface of TinyChat and moves further. The Sparks feed system provides a visual take on the RSS subscriptions of the past. Sign up for an invite at plus.google.com. In the meantime, check out the videos released by Google. By the way, we’ve introduced the Google+ button under all our Inspiration Room stories, alongside the Facebook Like, Tweet This, Digg, Stumbleupon and many other social networking options.

    I am really proud that I also got the chance to get inside Google+. It is really great. Looks like a threat to Facebook?

    1. Google+ is currently available on an invitation-only basis.

    2. Google does not consider it a Facebook competitor (at least publicly).

    3. Google+ is currently available for download as an app in the Android Market.

    4. When you download that app, it splits off the “Huddle” feature as a separate app.

    Google Plus has a feature that is very impressive especially in terms of privacy. Circles feature makes us comfortable in the virtual world is no longer any concern of our photos and family will be plowed and spread widely on the Internet. Nevertheless Facebook is still relevant to mass communication that is easier

    I think as Google+ becomes available to the general public it will gain speed. I see this as bloatware for every android phone. There will be an easy access link added to the chrome browser. I don’t know if it will de-throne Facebook but isn’t that what we were saying about Myspace. Only time will tell.

    its nice but it doesn’t have pages or groups to join as I saw – like facebook ;(

    Thanks for sharing this post!

    I believe Google Plus is the first Google Social Networking product that really has the potential to give some troubles to Facebook. What’s going to happen? What will the two giants do in order to win the war?

    I jotted down few thougths about the topic on my blog:

    It would be great if you guys could take a second to give me your opinions about it!
