Google+ Opens to the Public

After three months of being "by invitation only," Google+ is now open to the public!

The Internet’s newest social networking site – Google+ – has finally opened to the public, boasting more than 20 million users. The new social network is based on Circles – like friends, family and colleagues – who share something in common. That way, users can easily share updates to a specific group of people, without the awkward gaffe popularized by Facebook.

Other than going public, Google also released a handful of features to “bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing,” as written by Vic Gundotra — the search engine giant’s senior vice president of engineering.

Hangouts, Google+’s version of live video chats, enables users to include multiple people for a face-to-face conversation. Moreover, users can have their own brand of public broadcasting via “Hangouts on Air.” And when the conversation runs dry, click “Try Hangouts with Extras.” With this feature, users can share their computer screen or whatever is in display. Moreover, all public post in Google+ is now searchable. In addition to this, Google renamed “Huddles” to “Messenger.”

Do you have a Google+ account? What are your impressions with the new social networking site?
