Ok, so here is what we know!

Google seems set to challenge the likes of Facebook with a brand new social sharing site that will be called Google+

The idea is that Google+ will allow you to create groups of friends and acquaintances known as “Circles”. The driving concept is that rather than sharing ‘everything’ with ‘everyone’, you will be able to share your thoughts in a more targeted manner.

This may mean that the classic ‘Facebook Fail’ of sharing your less noble moments with your work colleagues and seniors may become easier to avoid in future.

There seem to be four main features to Google’s new networking platform:

Circles

Hangouts

Sparks

Instant Photo Sharing
