Google+ has created quite a stir since its arrival online a few weeks ago. It seems to have a mature and sensible outlook on how to social network in a civilized way that benefits all equally. Follow people you truly want to, and don't feel obligated to follow someone else just because they're following you. Make as many Circles (or groups of interest) as you want, name them however you please, have them intersect if helpful, and follow it all in your own Stream. There is so much to Google+ that we have included a helpful video that should smooth your way into this shiny new social network that seems to glitter with a pristine reputation and the lure of new technology.

Google+ is brand new on iPhone as of now (sadly, Android users got a jump on us iOS devotees!) Creating Circles of those who really hold your interest is the big bonus of Google+. Preserve your anonymity and privacy if that is your wish. Never be forced to play games, take part in poking or reading senseless posts. Huddle lets you send messages rapidly to the people you choose, while the Stream lets you stay current about what your friends, acquaintances or business partners are sharing.

Some of the interesting and social-smart features of Google+ are as follows:

- Circles let you share the right things with just the right people.
- Stream is where you can get updates from your circles or see what people are saying about things nearby.
- Huddle is super-fast group messaging for everyone in your circles.

When you open Google+, it will give a brief explanation of 3 items: Circles, Stream and Huddle. You will then Get Started by signing in with your Google account. You will notice 5 icons on the home page: Stream, Huddle, Photos, Profile, Circles. I had already set up my profile online prior to downloading this app, so I was pretty much ready to go. When you click on Stream, you will see Headings of Incoming, Circles and Nearby. You can swipe to page through to the section you want. Write new posts and include your location if you care to. Add photos to the Photo section from your camera or photo album. View your circles either in entirety or by each person. Create new ones if you want. Oh, and by the way, Google+ is only available for users 13 and older.

The video below is not made specifically for iPhone. It is actually an introduction to Google+ as a whole. This will help you to better understand its function when you install the app. Google+ is an evolutionary type of social networking that is clean and simple, yet tailored to meet your needs. Customization is quite detailed, while viewing news and posting your own information is simple and gets where you want it to go.
