Google Plus may not have the initial momentum it used to receive, but it is still a hot choice in many ways. At the outset, Google+ may seem just another social network but a deeper look reveals that there is more than meet the eyes. In fact, it is going to shape a whole new identity for Google. And if it’s going to change Google, think how it’s going to change you. Yes, Google+ is not just a social network like Facebook. With the ‘Unwanted Timeline’ taking a permanent space in the life of Facebook users, more and more people are shifting from Facebook to Google+. So let’s take a quick analysis of Google Plus.
1. Integration of Services
Can you imagine a day without using Google or YouTube? Ok leave it; what about your Gmail or Google Docs or Google Calendar? No; right? So, what if you can access everything from your social networking account itself? Yes, Google+ is well integrated with all other services provided by Google, including Google Search, Gmail and YouTube. So you don’t have to open multiple tabs in your browsers anymore.
2. Privacy for Posts
Other than the predefined settings for making a profile ‘public’ or ‘private’, you don’t have an option to make a post ‘public’ or ‘private’ on Facebook. Unlike this, Google Plus gives you the option of selecting the particular circle for displaying your posts. Say for instance, you want to post a picture of your girlfriend, but don’t want your parents to see that. Yes, you can do that on Google+.
3. Easy ‘Circles’ Management
You talk any sort of rubbish with your friends but, is that the way you talk with teachers or parents? No; right? Unlike the Facebook ‘friends’, Google+ allows you to create circles and add people to each circle depending on your choice. For instance, you can create one circle for your classmates, while another for your workplace friends. Simply speaking, you can manage your friends more effectively and efficiently.
4. Data Security
There’s nothing much surprising if you find your picture being used by other profiles on Facebook. But that doesn’t happen with Google Plus. You can delete your Google+ account whenever you want. Best of all, you can take back all the uploaded data within a matter of few minutes. Be it Picasa, profile pictures, posts or anything, the ‘Data Liberation’ tool will take care of retrieving everything whenever required.
5. Mobile Applications
Are you an Android user? Then there’s some good news for you. Google+ offers a mobile application that allows you to visit you Google+ account instantaneously. In addition to having innumerous number of applications, Google+ makes them available to the Android users without much effort.
6. Search Engine Optimization
If you think the ‘+1’ button is similar to the ‘Like’ button on Facebook, you are wrong. Google recently announced its plan to use the +1 button as a tool for search engine optimization. In simple terms, the more ‘+1’s you have for a post, news or anything, the higher will be your search results. So, your opinion about a website or webpage is also going to be considered.
7. The Annoying Facebook Timeline
The new Facebook timeline may seem interesting at the first look, but it can really screw up your life also. It displays everything you have posted or updated in the past, which means it can dig up things which you are trying to forget. Worst of all, Mark Zuckerberg has announced Facebook’s plan to make the Timeline Feature compulsory for everyone. And that’s a real blow at your privacy.
