Google+, the social networking website that is growing at a fast pace has now rolled out a new feature for the teenagers. Google hopes that this feature will surely challenge the rival, Facebook and its popularity.
The teens and the youngsters are the ones who are the active users of internet and social networks. They are also the ones who will be interested in spending more time with their friends and family. These two aspects let us conclude that they will connect online at a larger scale than the rest.
Unfortunately, this age group is still the second in online sharing. They can share the right content with the right people like the close ties, parents and classmates. This is the concept behind the selective sharing feature. It will promote the accountability and authenticity of the sharing.
The online tools that are available today are quite brittle and rigid and the teens end up in over-sharing the content with all their friends which is not so secure. The Hangout video chats in the network can be modified for the teenagers. This will prevent a stranger from joining the hangout and also the network will remove the person temporarily and ask to rejoin.
Previously, Google+ was open to those user who are 18 years and above but right now any Google users can access the social network. Facebook with 800 million users is actually open to users above 13 years.
