This is better than Buzz. This is more intuitive than +1. It’s Google+. Google’s very first social network with great features will have to play catch-up with Facebook, but with an amazing interface and a mix of great features, it may have a chance. While I have not personally handled Google+ (but of course will), I can’t say what I like about it myself, but I will go into what Google+ has: Circles, which allows you to group contacts together in various social circles and share things only with the particular circles of your choosing; Sparks, which are topics similar to Twitter’s hashtags, and Hangouts, which are video chat rooms. There is also a mobile element/app to Google+, and for now focuses on text updates, photo and video sharing, along with good old location. It is currently in a private beta. A video after the break demos and explains Google+ features.
