Google Launches Social Service to combat Facebook

Google launched a social service this afternoon entitled Google+ that still seems to be in closed beta. There is a page on Googles site that describes what the service will be. The page goes into detail about the sub services of Google+ such as Circles which is a service that lets you share what you want with who you want. There is also Huddle which is pretty much a group chat for text messaging so that planning your night out is easier. Another one is called Hangouts which is a video chat with your friends, you basically let your friends know you will be “hanging out” and they can join the chat room if they like. There is much more and details about launch date are still not available. Visit the link below to find out more.
