What is Google+ and How Do You Use It In Your Tacoma or Seattle Business?

Google+ is a new social networking service launched by Google Inc. Many believe this is an attempt to challenge the popularity of Facebook that engages over 800 million users.

Similar to other sites, Google+ offers features such as Circles that group a person’s list of contacts. An individual can create multiple Circles. For instance, they may group together friends, co-workers, clients, and acquaintances. These circles have the ability to be kept private from other users.

Another popular feature are the Hangouts. Google+ users can create a video chat with up to ten individuals through a specific URL. These chats are not considered private, because if anyone happens upon the URL, they could potentially join in to the Hangout.

Other features include Messenger where users can communicate with other individuals in their circle, Instant Upload that allows for creating web albums and Games are similar to other social networking sites.

The most used feature of Google+ is their +1 button which is featured on the Google search engine. This allows users to share what websites they would like to promote and recommend to others.
