Last night Google launched their own contender for Facebook’s crown. Google+ is the search giant’s newest concept to tackle “Zuck” and Co. at their own game and even take it further. The move surprised a large number of people in the search and social media industries, despite a number of glaring (at least in hindsight) indications. There was a suprising lack of information around the launch, not even the usual industry gossip around such an announcement. Naturally, the web has since exploded with the news.
So, what is Google+ and what does it mean to you and me?
