    Posted on July 19th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    To any social networking platforms, mobile apps about social networking are quite important for expansion in the currently highly developed mobile phone market and highly spread use of mobile phones, which has been showed by Twitter and Facebook. As a fresh social network platform, introduced by the tech giant Google, Google+ is absolutely following the same developing mode. When it launched, Google had issued an Android app of Google+ for Android users to experience Google+ on their Android mobile phones. Yesterday, Google has launched an iOS app for Apple iPhone users to use its Google+ service, an important milestone for the fledgling social network to expand its social network influence and attract more users.

    Google+ app for iPhone

    The iPhone version of Google+ keeps mostly the same as the Google+ in desktop web version. All main features are included like the Stream, Circles and Huddles. Of course, it also has its limitations, just like the unavailability of the group-video-chat Hangouts feature. The current version of the iPhone Google+ app is 1.0.1.1809 sized at 5.3MB, with the main features listed below:

    – Better support for blocking unwanted messages in Huddle

    – Better support for attaching photos to a post

    – Various bug fixes and performance improvements

    Currently, it is only compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4 and requires iOS 4.0 or later, no iPad or iPod supported now. Now, this Google+ app for iPhone could be available to free download on Apple’s App Store.

  • Google+ vs. Facebook: A comparison between the two social network giants

    Posted on July 5th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    In Google+, the search giant offers a serious competitor to Facebook. Here’s how the two social networks stack up.

    How Does Google+ Stack Up Against Facebook?

    With Google+, the behemoth of Web search may have finally figured out social networking. Demand for Google+ invites is reportedly through the roof, and critics are generally pleased with how the service works.

    But do we really need another social network? Can Google+ offer a service that Facebook does not? While you wait for the chance to see for yourself, take a look at this slideshow to learn how Facebook and Google+ compare.

    Google+ VS. Facebook

    Look and Feel: Google+

    Facebook users should be quite comfortable with Google+, because the layout is nearly identical. Comment streams run down the center of the page, flanked by groups on the left and friend suggestions on the right. Chat windows appear in the bottom-right corner, just as on Facebook.

    Look and Feel: Facebook

    Yup, Google isn’t hiding its design inspirations, as UXBoy points out in a side-by-side comparison. Facebook has a few extra bells and whistles, though, in the form of events and games.

    Creating Groups in Google+

    A big draw of Google+ is the way it forces users to separate family, friends, and acquaintances into separate groups, called “circles.” Users can create their own custom circles and add people

    Creating Groups in Facebook

    Unlike Google+, Facebook is not designed around the group dynamic, but users can make public or private groups, with the option to allow all members to invite other people into the fold. It’s more of an optional feature–family members can have a little pow-wow, for instance–than a way of sifting out who sees what.

    Profiles in Google+

    I’m using the page for my colleague Daniel as an example here. You can see that Google+ profiles resemble a layout that Facebook previously used, separating status updates, information, and photos into separate tabs. One nice touch in Google+: When a user has multiple profile images, you can click the image to swap the thumbnail. (Try it on the page of Vic Gundotra, Google’s senior vice president of engineering.)

    Profiles in Facebook

    Facebook’s recently redesigned profile pages condense everything into a single view. Brief biographical tidbits and a strip of recent photos float above the user’s wall and recent activity. In a column to the left, Facebook still offers separate tabs for photos and other information.

    Photos Compared

    Photos on Google+ have a neat-looking staggered layout (but at least in my circle, there isn’t much to see right now). Facebook’s almighty album view makes for a superior friend-stalking environment. (I’ve blurred their faces for privacy here.)

    Mobile Apps Compared

    For now, the Google+ mobile app (left) is available only on Android, but it comes with a unique group-chat feature called Huddle. The Google+ iPhone Web app offers more-basic functions, including status updates, check-ins, and photo viewing. Facebook’s app has more features, including events and private chat, and it’s available on more platforms.

    Bonus Google+ Feature: Hangouts

    I haven’t spent much time with Hangouts, which allows as many as ten Google+ users to video-chat simultaneously, but it has lots of potential. The ability to watch YouTube videos live with friends, as shown here, could make for hilarious time-wasting.

    Bonus Google+ Feature: Sparks

    Can’t figure out what to do on Google+? A section of the site called “Sparks” serves up news articles based on your interests. The feature is kind of bland right now, as it lacks any sort of social interaction, but perhaps that will change.

    Facebook’s Secret Weapon: Games

    What Facebook lacks in simplicity, it makes up for with heaps of time-sucking diversions, such as FarmVille. There have been some indications that Google+ may become a gaming hub–the company has been looking for a gaming product manager–but for now Facebook dominates social games, which are a big reason that people spend so much time on the site. If Google decides to integrate Web-based apps, especially games, via its Chrome Web Store, Google+ would be able to compete more squarely with Facebook on the entertainment front.

  • How to Begin Google+ – 10 Useful Tips for Google+ Beginners

    Posted on June 14th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    Google has recently launched its social network platform Google+ for users, which people in the world all think is a strong competitor to the present social network giant Facebook. Today, we are not going to talk about the advantages or disadvantages of Google+ and Facebook. We just take a review on how to begin Google+ when you have received the invitation from Google. The below is a slideshow made by Kristin Burnham, a PCWorld writer. Let’s just learn something from this.

    Google+ Tips for Beginners

    You just got your hands on a Google+ invite–but what next? Check out these 10 tips to get you started on Google’s new social network.

    The Background

    Google Plus (aka Google+), Google’s new social network, might offer the right mix of sharing and privacy to woo you away from your Facebook account. If you don’t know how to use it, though, it’s just a confusing mess of circles and contacts. So we’ve assembled a few tips to help you get started.

    Tip 1: Mute Annoying Post

    Mute Annoying Post

    A post you commented on could quickly become popular and suddenly you find responses to it are spiraling out of control. Fear not, Google+ has a “Mute” function. To stop receiving updates from a post and remove it from your stream, click the arrow at the top of the post, then select “Mute this post.” To un-mute it, follow the same steps and select “Undo mute.”

    Tip 2: Keyboard shortcuts

    Keyboard ShortcutsGoogle+ has designed a number of keyboard shortcuts that let you quickly maneuver through your Google+ stream, as well as format your posts using bold, italic and strikethrough fonts.

    Tip 3: How to Claim a Vanity URL

    Claim A Vanity URL

    Unlike Facebook, Google+ does not yet offer vanity URLs, or a shorter URL that you can use to point others to your profile. Enter gplus.to: a service that shortens your Google+ URL into something more simple.

    Visit the site, choose a shorter username. then copy and paste the string of numbers identifying your Google+ page. This will create your vanity URL: gplus.to/yourusername.

    Tip 4: Double-Check With Whom You’re Sharing

    Double Check with Who You're Sharing

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget who you’ve put into which Circles. If you ever have doubts when posting an update or sharing a link on Google+, click on the “Limited” link at the top. You’ll see photo icons for each of the people who will be able to view and share your post with their connections.

    Tip 5: Tag Someone in a Post
