I know everyone is excited about using Google+ and most of us are dying to use it. Certainly when Google launches something, it has many things which you really never thought of.  I was reading different reviews about Google + and I agree to one of the comments that Google + is just like facebook with no friends

Some of the Pros : More or less, the interface is the same except Google’s traditional White background everywhere.  You will see the interface is very user-friendly and doesnt look like a clutter ( which new users experience when they start using Facebook). The most killer feature of Google+ is Hangout which is video conferencing feature with atmost 10 people at one time. I havent tried this feature yet but thats what it says.  Other than that, terminologies are different like Friends are called ‘Circles’ and the categorization is very easy as you just need to drag and drop friends in a group. Sparks is a decent feature where you can tag the keywords to followup with the latest happenings and news.

Now comes to the Cons – First of all, No Wall, No message inbox and I am still figuring out how to do it.  The interface is friendly yet very basic indeed. I am sure Google must be working on this as well because there is alot to done in terms of adding things.

Recommendations to Google : Add and integrate Google other products where user can check email while working on Google Plus. There are no gadgets at all so its more like Twitter’s upgraded version with some additional and flashy features. Google can do a lot better than this because in order to increase the stay time on Google plus, they need to do something other than people just come and updating their statuses on a new website. Google’s webstore is a very good option which should be integrated in Google Plus where people can play games, add other apps to their Google interface just like we have high level of customization on Android. Google has beaten Iphone who has ruled the world for many years and I am sure, Facebook is just another piece of cake if they do well.

All the best to Google!
