With 10 million new users can Google+ take the crown?
It’s well known that Google has had a little rivalry with Facebook for sometime now and has tried repeatedly to create the next, more popular social network to knock Facebook down off of its throne. Several attempts with Wave and Buzz have come and fizzled out just as fast, but now there is Google+. With a very Facebook-esque interface, Google+ has already reached 10 million users since its recent launch. The difference this time is that Google isn’t just opening the doors to everyone, you have to be invited into this kingdom. Is it enough to take over as the ruler of the social world or is it too similar to the current king? Techies are having trouble defining and separating it from current networks, so what is this new platform really about and what impact is it expected to have in social media?
