Webinar recording: Get to know Google+ (20/11/2012)

Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and
the like are all social networks. They’re designed to let you share up-to-the
second updates,
ideas, thoughts, links and media with your friends and the public. There are a few features which makes Google different from these other networks.

  • Google
    has
    integrated Google+
    with
    its
    other
    services (and continues to do so) e.g.
    Search, YouTube, Gmail and more.  Google+ is already built into services you use
    every day.
  • Google+ uses the concept of circles (groups), and this differentiates it from Facebook for example as it allows users precise control over who sees what.
