Google+ invite received, we go hands-on

Google is betting that its new social network, Google+, will fix what it calls the "awkward" state of online sharing--but Google isn't sharing invitations to its latest project with everyone.

It’s hard to argue with Google’s track record. The company has scored a hit in nearly every space in which it’s dabbled: search, email, ads, office software, etc. There’s always been one glaring exception to this rule, however: social networking. The company hasn’t made much of a dent in a world dominated by Facebook (and, once upon a time, MySpace and Friendster).

For Google+, however, the company dove in with both feet, launching a multi-faceted service that brings a lot to the table with features like Circles, Hang Out, and Huddle. Is it enough to end Google’s streak of misteps in the social world? Join us as we take a dive deeper into Google’s latest attempt to find out.

Those who have spent any time at all on Facebook will find it nearly impossible not to draw comparisons upon logging in. Let there be no question: Google is going after the world’s largest social network — and it’s doing so in a big way. The page is constructed around a familiar content stream populated with content from your friends’ updates and posts — things like links, photos, and location updates. The “Circles” feature comes into play in the stream, offering users the option of sending posted content to specified groups or making it public for all the world to see.

Google + can be obtained in two ways one of which is to make a request to google as I read on this blog. How To Get A Google+ Invite
