“Stream” bears many similarities to Facebook’s “News Feed”; they both regularly update statuses of friends as well as pictures and videos. On G+ however you will be able to filter your “Stream” so that it only shows updates from specific “Circles” and blocks certain people. Another feature of G+ that particularly stood out was the instant upload feature for smart phones. Once the app, that is available only on the android market place, has been downloaded then every photo and video taken is uploaded to a private folder on G+ allowing the user to go back later and customise their own privacy and sharing settings for each photo.


This is done through the “Circles” part of the site that allows the user to place individual contacts into social groups of their own choice


Needless to say Google+ is going to make a massive change to what is already one of the largest and most frequently visited search engines on the web at the moment. Other features include group video chats and constant updates on your personal interests and activities, however the final layout of G+ will not be revealed until after the current trial period has ended and the site is made open to the public. If you want to take a look at what Google have put together so far, go to www.google.co./+ for an interactive tour of the new features.
