The Google+ project aims to make sharing on the web more like sharing in real life. Sharing is a huge part of the web, a part that Google+ makes a lot simpler with these features:
- Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life. Sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. More Info »
- Sparks is a feature that looks for videos and articles it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something to watch, read, and share.
- Hangouts brings the unplanned meet-up to the web, with group video chat. Let buddies know you’re hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat.
- Huddle offers simple group texting, turning a bunch of different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page long before thumbs get sore.
