A look at Google+
Google+ is built around the idea of sharing. Through this new social medium, you will be able to communicate with friends and family and pursue the things that interest you personally.
The key elements of Google+ will help make this a simple process, requiring minimal effort whilst yielding the best results.
Circles help you organise everyone according to your real-life social connections - say, 'family,' 'work friends,' 'music buddies,' and 'alumni'. Then, you can share relevant content with the right people and follow content posted by people that you find interesting. For example, you might post an announcement about your engagement and show it only to people in your friends and family circles, or maybe you see a post from the circle you created for your book club that there's a recent article on your favourite author.
Sparks is a great way to find news, information and media on the web about topics you're interested in, and to strike up conversations with your circles. When you search for your interests in Sparks, we'll give you snippets of recent and trending stories on that subject. Then you can easily share the spark you found with whoever you want.
Hangouts let you relax and talk with others. For example you can use live video chat that puts you in the same room together or maybe coordinate plans, whether it's working on a project or meeting up for coffee.
