Google Inc. launched its most ambitious social-networking effort yet, broadening a battle with Facebook Inc. to grab the attention of Web users and future advertising dollars.

The new service, a top priority for new Google Chief Executive Larry Page, is aimed at exploiting what has been considered a weakness of Facebook—that by default people using Facebook share all their information with a big group of friends.

The new Google social network, called Google+, was released Tuesday in a "field trial period," meaning it is an invitation-only product and will be available more broadly later.

Google is 'interesting'.
Web searching (w/ subjective results)
Document editing
Video viewing and sharing (youtube + goole accounts are linked)
information gathering/caching
and social networking


I try to avoid 'social networking',(I'm an internet introvert, I suppose) but It's amazing (and a bit disturbing) just how intertwined everything is becoming... by default, my phone mixes all my contacts, email and social stuff, and makes it VERY easy to "share" among all of them. I have things separate, but it took some effort.


What I don't like is how relatively easy it is to have your website (or server)remotely Effed with from halfway around the world, or be a victim of ID theft, or all the other things you see here (in the FPP microcosm of the Net) and how difficult it is to get the authorities involved to stop it.
