Giant Google Incorporation has launched Google+ (Google Plus) as the competitor of popular social network site Facebook. As, another social networking site- Orkut, did not get so much popularity among the users, Google has launched Google+. Now we are waiting to see how powerfully it can compete with Facebook. The main facility of Google+ is that one can use it through Gmail account and no need to log in differently. The address of Google+ is https://plus.google.com. The site is much designed like Facebook. Here you can make circles, can upload photos and videos. There are Photo tab, Video tab, +1 tab, Buzz tab in the site. Those who don’t have Google+ account can browse and see other’s Google+ profiles, though Facebook doesn’t offer this opportunity.
