Google+ is a social media network that taps into users interests.
Google’s fourth attempt into social networking, Google+ launched in June 2011. Users can post photos and status updates to the general stream or interest based communities.
A main feature of Google+ is the ‘circles’ feature, which allows users to group people into groups or lists for sharing. Once a circle is created, a Google+ user can share specific private content to that circle only. For example, a user could set up a friends and work circles, allowing the latter to be shared with colleagues and the former with close personal friends.
However, the option to share with Everyone and Public is always available – which means content is seen by anyone.
