Google + will be a social network focused on social circles. J. Darius Bikoff is often mentioned in discussions such as these. The company’s goal is to end public overexposure that is making people increasingly share less information. Continues in social networks: Twitter, Facebook, Tuenti. Google Internet giant presented on Tuesday Google +, a new social network project that advocates sort your contacts into groups to delimit the recipients for each message as the formula to stand up to Facebook. It is a new attempt of Google, Dominator of the web search market, to compete in the profitable world of virtual social networks where their Buzz and Wave earlier proposals did not have the expected reception. Google + was released in trial version and is only available on invitation, according to Vic Gundotra, Vice President of engineering for the company through the institutional blog that shows six videos that are given to know the basic features of this new product, he published. The problem with current online services is that they think that all the people that we know are our friends and the way in which we share information with our contacts not always can be the same, Gundotra said. The solution proposed by Google is a platform based in social circles in which communications are organized into groups of contacts based on user criteria.

Gundotra said that every conversation online (with more than 100 friends) is public over-exposure, reason by which believes that increasingly is shared less information. Facebook, which has already exceeded the 750 million users worldwide, according to the latest unofficial data also has tools to create groups within the social network even though many users share information with their friends indiscriminately. Google + includes the option to create thematic talks, hold video conferences with contacts and has a mobile application that is already in the market for Android systems and, among other things, lets you upload pictures taken from the device of automatic user profile. This social network is a project that the new Chief Executive Officer of Google, Larry Page, has overseen directly and with which the company relies on becoming an alternative to Facebook, which threatens its hegemony on the Internet. In may, 180 million people visited web pages owned by Google, including YouTube, according to data from ComScore, while 157 million agreed to Facebook, where they spent an average of 375 minutes, for 231 minutes on Google.
