Ashton Kutcher was just invited to Google Plus and guess what? He accepted the invitation! For those who don’t know, Ashton Kutcher was the first person to reach a million followers on twitter. Today Ashton Kutcher has almost ten million followers on twitter. Google suspended the special Invite feature of Google+ because it was being stormed with new users who wanted to join. For now they are sending special invites to individuals so if got an invite you’re special. So Here Are The Top 10 Reasons To Use Google+.
10. Google+ Is Very Easy To Use
Google Plus is very easy to use, unlike Facebook which is much more complicated.
9. View curated content based on interests
Another new concept in Google’s social network is that Google should do one thing it already does fairly well: point you toward content that you want to find and explore. Google calls this new element Sparks, and it leverages a lot of what Google already does, but with more of an entertainment angle.
8. Upload photos and videos to cloud without publishing publicly
Google+ mobile apps (coming soon), will have an auto-upload feature so that any photo or video you take on your phone using the app (rather than the phone’s built-in camera) will automatically be uploaded to your account, ready to share. The content doesn’t go public right away, so you can decide later who will get to see it. The next time you log into Google from your desktop, a number in the status bar will show how many new uploads you have on deck, ready to share.
7. Edit posts after you post them
Unlike Facebook, Google Plus also lets you edit posts after you post them and decide for each post whether to allow comments, a feature I liked.
6. Delete your Google+ Account If You Don’t Like It
Have you ever tried to delete your Facebook account? The option is so buried it’s nearly impossible to find. Deactivating a Facebook account is slightly easier, but it doesn’t actually remove your entire presence from Facebook. Friends can still invite you to events, tag you in photos, or ask you to join groups after your account is deactivated—you just won’t know about it.
Google+ on the other hand lets people leave easily. Facebook has received a lot of flak for not being upfront with users about certain default privacy settings and the like, so it actually is rather important that users are able to easily delete their Google+ accounts. And like Facebook, Google+ lets you download all your data (photos, messages) so you won’t lose anything if you quit.
5. Watch a YouTube video in real-time with friends
Within Hangouts, you and your friends can watch and search for YouTube videos together as a group. And anyone in the hangout has access to the controls to play, pause, or search for a new video. When you start the video, the group chat mutes everyone by default (to minimize echoes), but there’s a button labeled Push to Talk that overrides it.
4. Google +1
Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1′s can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.
3. +Sparks – Decide Who to Share Topics/News With
+Sparks “looks for videos and articles it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something to watch, read, and share.” A Google+ user may see a topic or news that they might only want to share with certain Circles in their social network. Through Sparks, interesting topics can be shared with one person, one Circle or every connection on Google+.
2. +Hangouts – Group Video Chat For Up to 10 People
The fact that Facebook currently has no video chat feature has already cause techies to point out where Google+ is ahead of the social networking game. In Google+, up to 10 people can video chat through +Hangouts.
1. +Circles – More Privacy Control
Instead of Friends’ list on Facebook, Google+ groups a user’s friends through +Circles. Google+ users have more control about which groups of friends see a photo or status update, which could give Google+ an edge in privacy control.
