Somebody has rightly stated, 'Man is a Social Animal'. If we list down material needs of a man, he needs air, water, food and shelter. But in a virtual world, it is social networking sites that define the mode of survival for youngsters, adults and children. Social Networking has become a favorite activity for these so called social animals these days. With the increasing demand of networking and building connections, competition among different social platforms has beefed up incredibly. Every company keeps devising newer strategies and features periodically to give a tough competition to their competitive social horses.
In such a scenario, we cannot expect Google to take a backseat. To be a part of this rampant social business, this Internet giant stepped into this field to oust other popular social networking warriors. Google has done a bang up job with the roll-out of its interesting social platform, Google Plus.
By far, many people have joined it and the response is mind-boggling. Though some call Google Plus as Facebook counterpart, with few identical features; nevertheless, there are still some things that evidently proves it to be a WWW pioneer. It is the dogmatic, organized approach that Google adopted and implemented in its Plus which will surely crown the company as 'King of Web'. Lets check out what extra panache Google has added to its own social dias.
Group Video Chat:
Google believed that there is no better way of striking a group conversation, so it chose to combine group casual talk with multi-person live video chat. Its 'Hangout' is absolute fun. If you wish to share the stuff with your defined circles face-to-face, Google Plus is the right choice.
It is quite Interest-ing. Unlike other social enterprises, Google has ignited fire on the public battleground with its new feature, Sparks. It allows people to fan out their interests on Google plus and share with people added in their circles.
To act different from its social competitors, Google made an engaging move with Google Plus. A new feature that allow Google Plus users to share posts and other information from people outside their circles or Google Plus network has been added to it. By just clicking on the 'Incoming' button, Google Plus users can choose to know what others(people outside their circles)have to share with them on Plus.
Google Plus enable users to instantly upload Youtube videos and enjoy the same with friends or family added in circles via Hangout.
With Huddles, Google Plus facilitate users to send group text messages to people added in circles at the same time.
Regardless of this exclusivity, Google Plus is more organized and customized. There is an inbred feature of segregating people according to the nature of relationship you share with them. Family, Friends, Acquaintances etc., are some of the categorized streams you'll find on Google Plus.
