The Difference between #Facebook and #Google+
The difference between Facebook and Google+

The simplest way I can describe the difference between Facebook and Google Plus is that while Facebook helps you keep in touch with the people you already know, Google+ helps you get in touch with the people you want to know.

You come to Facebook to find out what’s happening in your friend’s lives. For me, it has done a good job of reconnecting me to old friends and letting me better know what's happening.
Google+, on the other hand, is the place to go if you’re interested in sharing thoughts and ideas, commenting on events, or learning and sharing knowledge about science, education, hobbies, sports, entertainment or the arts.

Google+ is all about your interests which you don't necessarily share with your old classmates or colleagues.


At first, joining Google+ can seem like walking into a cavernous hall devoid of people. However, the truth is that you’re surrounded by millions and to make them appear all you have to do is listen. Listening entails searching for people whom you want to hear and placing them in a “circle” of your choosing: “Hangout Pals”, “Writers”, “Golf Fans”, “Knitters”, "Terry Pratchett Fans", “Learning to Sing”, etc. Select a circle and a stream of posts from within flows down your screen. You can mute the over-enthusiastic posters or a circle: Just use the slider on top of the individual circle's stream.

Search Google+ for your favourite authors, artists, sports/film/TV stars. Search for your favourite hobby or anything you are interested in, then circle those who say things that grab your attention. Check who those individuals have circled or who has circled them. Select liberally and soon you’ll find yourself swimming in streams of thoughts, tips, and news about the very things that interest you.
The Facebook entry box asks “What is on your mind?” Google+ not only makes it easy to answer but also makes it even easier for others to find out what you have to say.

Try it and you won't regret it!

Give Google+ a try and don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s just another Facebook clone. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Google+ and Facebook serve two separate yet complimentary needs.

Fill in your profile, tell us about yourself, your likes and special faves: It makes circling you so much easier!

(Sharing this with FB friends is recommended. :-)
