What is Google+ and Do You Need It? [Video]



By now many if not most of your are already using Google+ or have heard about it some way or another. In case you haven’t because you went away on a trip to a remote jungle area in South America, got marooned on an island in the Pacific or didn’t use the Internet the last few weeks, then don’t worry because I’ll share with you this funny yet informative video about Google+ or Google Plus.

For those of you who are already on Google Plus or know what it is about, you don’t have to worry about explaining what this new social network is about and how it works. Just share the video below to all your family, friends, co-workers and other people who wants to know about it. I bet you could even use this video to convince your friends on Facebook to try if not switch to Google+.

WHAT IS GOOGLE+ AND DO YOU NEED IT?


Kudos to the video author, YouTube user “epipheo“. He did a very good job with the presentation of the facts and at the same time, making it simple and easy to understand. I also like the way he explains Google+ and the issue about privacy settings on Facebook as explained in the video description:

Google Plus is Google’s new social network. But why start a Google Plus account when you already have a Facebook account? Well, Facebook was developed on the premise that everyone is your “friend” which isn’t how your social circles work in real life. Google plus is built so that you can intuitively break up all your connections into “circles” and treat each circle separately. (Facebook allows you to do some of the same things but the privacy settings are confusing and constantly changing.)

Btw, if you want to try Google+ and would like an invite, just leave a comment below or send me a message via the Contact page.

How do you like the What is Google Plus and do I need it? video? Who among you here are already on Google’s social network? Have you completely switched to Google+ and totally abandoned Facebook or you plan to keep both? What other issues and concerns have made you switch? Please share your thoughts.

      @Bacolod Blogger – I agree. Google+ won’t be able to take over Facebook right away but if there’s someone who can do it, it’s Google+. Have you seen the chart that shows how fast social networks reached 25 Million users? Others reached it in a year or two and Google+ did it within 2 months.
