Have you looked at google Plus (+), visit www.plus.google.com. Google+ is a social network operated by Google, Inc., launched on June 28th, 2011 with integrations across a number of Google products, such as Buzz and Profiles. The key element of Google+ is a focus on targeted sharing.
Google+, so far, has a much more streamlined places for interactivity. It actually just has 5 points of interactivity versus the gazillions on Facebook and they are mainly:
Circles – The feature basically allows you to group friends, family, and various associates into groups. So, perhaps, this means that you can organize your social life by interest or type of association — instead of having their updates stream together in just one timeline.Then again, isn’t this already a feature on Facebook?
Hangouts – Looks pretty much like private messages on Facebook where you’ve got several people on the same thread. I
Instant Upload — Promises to make uploading photos more fun because with “Instant upload, your photos and videos upload themselves automatically in a private album on Google+”. Which probably isn’t a good idea if you have private files.
Sparks — Okay, you simply tell Sparks what you’re into and it will send you stuff it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something cool to watch, read, or share. Now,with Facebook and Twitter people actually take the time to read my timeline so that they can spam me?
Huddle — It’s a group chat. Plain and simple. If your like me and you dont like chatting at all, this is a feature you will not like.
Anyway, haven’t been able to jump into it as its not very clear to me how its going to be of help to me. It also feels like another facebook with few people on it but not different. What do you think of it?
