Google’s new social project Google+ and its 5 main features

You may have already seen the tweets and blog posts about Google+ (Google Plus) yesterday. But just in case you missed them or didn’t have the time to read them, here’s a short summary of Google+ and its 5 main features.

Google+ is Google’s social project that makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler.

The 5 main features of Google+ include:

1. Circles:
You share different things with different people. So sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself – just like real life.

2. Sparks:
Tell Sparks what you’re into and it will send you stuff it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something cool to watch, read, or share.

3. Hangouts:
With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let specific buddies (or entire circles) know you’re hanging out and then see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until teleportation arrives, it’s the next best thing.

4. Instant Upload:
Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone is pretty much the opposite of fun. With Instant Upload, your photos and videos upload themselves automatically, to a private album on Google+.  All you have to do is decide who to share them with.

5. Huddle:
Texting is great, but not when you’re trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle turns all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page all at once. Your thumbs will thank you.

(NOTE: Google+ is still in active development and not yet available to everyone. You need an invitation to sign in.)
