Google+ is Here There & Everywhere

Google+ has more than 10 million users at present. WOW! It certainly shows that each and every Internet user is truly excited about it and there are people who find themselves too cool while they are using Google+ among their friends. It’s pretty obvious that whenever Google launches something, it comprises of such things that people never think of using and this makes them really excited about using it. There have been numerous blogs that are focusing Google+ these days; one of the most prominent reviews I came across was ‘Google+ is just another form of Facebook but with No Friends!”google+

Since the release of this service, it demand has been elevated to a great extent and the popular figures are already followed by tens of thousands of people. Although, Google+ is coming across various criticisms, yet it has created a buzz over the World Wide Web and people are  switching to it just to see how this new social networking medium works and it has become a rival to social media giant Facebook.

Google is already working on the criticism that is posted by its users and they should be expecting the changes in the coming week. Google’s senior vice-president Vic Gondotra has stated this.

We all are aware of the fact that Google is somewhat behind via its social networking rivals. Facebook last week announced that it has more than 750 million users and on the other hand, Twitter holds more than 300 million users.

Let’s see if Google+ can break all the records and if Internet users really stick to it! Good Luck Google+ !!

Facebook getting too much personal!!!

We are living in a era of Information technology where social media networking is of the key factors which has become a part of our daily routine. We share lots of stuff over social media sites like facebook.

Facebook is the largest network of social networking site with tens of millions of active users. Facebook has recently made some new changes in the privacy settings so now more information is publicly available which includes your city, education, interests and also friends. The pages with the button “Become a fan” have turned into “LIKE” button and the pages you LIKED will become a part of your profile that is publicly available to the world.

So under the old privacy settings, one could easily write “Swimming” or “Cooking” as your interests and still hide them from the public but Thanks to Facebook for the new settings which has made people’s life more miserable by removing this system and now the randomos can search also by filtering results based on interests. So things you share becomes a in the knowledge of outer world even if you don’t want to . But Thanks to U.S senators who have taken action against these new privacy settings and asked Facebook to roll back to the previous ones. On 27th April, the US senetaor, have also written a letter to Zuckerberg in which they have asked them to roll back the recent changes Facebook has made. Now lets see how he responds.
