Google not satisfied with social network tag

Google has excelled in provision of varied internet-related services which encompasses internet search, advertising technologies and cloud computing. This company has been offering its services and has also been upgrading the services in different names and forms like Google Friend Connect, Google Buzz and Orkut. The latest is the Google + after its launch on June 28th 2011 and as of June 2012 has become very popular with the people and has attracted 250 million users.

Everything’s fine, until, someone compares the above mentioned figures to that of Facebook’s stats which are truly very high when kept side by side to Google plus’s, and Google plus’s creators object calling it a social network and hence they claim that the comparison made is just baseless. They say that Google + is an upgrade to Google just like the others upgrade their websites and this is Google’s attempt to provide their users with more services and treat them to something they haven’t experienced yet. Google plus’s vice presidents think that Google plus provides those things which the users might be interested in and also have planned of a very unique advertisement strategy. But even with their new strategy the vice president doesn’t deny the fact that they might take some help from sponsored stories also. Now coming to what will be the features that will potentially attract people is the ‘Hangouts’. Now what is Hangouts? Well Hangouts refer to Video chats with multiple people, and this can be accessed through your mobile and the catchy thing is that it is free. But Google has never used this as a tool for making money instead they consider it ‘A consumer friendly tool’. It is yet to be announced for the use of businesses. The Vice presidents think that the people are not looking at Google + the way they should be because Google is not at all trying to compete Facebook or any other social networks for that matter. It’s just that some of the services provided by Google and those social networks common and this makes people compare them.
