Google Plus

Google Plus is another social network where you post status updates and share photos, just like Facebook — or is it? Actually, Google's latest project combines multiple services that make it more flexible and customizable than its competitors; for example, users can control exactly how their information is shared with features like "Circles," which separate contacts into distinct groups like friends, family and co-workers.

"Hangouts" in Google Plus

Hangouts is a multi-Video chat feature of Google Plus. Google Plus is the first social network site that implemented one-to-many (Up to 10 friends) video chat for Google+ users. People may wonder about How do people will interact and have fun with Google+ Hangouts.

Who can enter a hangout on Google+
Hangouts are created by one person, but everyone in the hangout shares the ability to invite others.

Each hangout has a specific URL. That URL can be shared as a link to invite others. However, only Google+ users are able to join. Be thoughtful when inviting as you can’t kick anyone out of a hangout. If you feel uncomfortable in a hangout you can leave at any time.

Here is an example of a Hangout with Ray, Emily and Carrie:
