Google Launches Google+ as a response to Facebook and Twitter
Thursday, 02 June 2011
Google+ is Google's new answer to Facebook and Twitter. Although it has only a small following, it is growing rapidly. Facebook recently was ranked as one of the worst 5 websites by customer satisfaction. Perhaps the integrated apps and ads have caused many Facebook users to be dissatisfied with the Facebook project. However you look at it, Facebook will be here for a long time. Most users will deal with the difficulties of Facebook rather than switch and lose connections to all of their friends. However, when the challenger is the cool and hip Google+ which is integrated with Google Apps and Gmail, it may be enough to start migrating users.
Check out the new Google+ here: http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/
