Google+ is reinventing itself with several advanced features that is lacking in Facebook as Twitter and LinkedIn etc. The most important being the process of disseminating information. This may be some of the many reasons why Google+ is shining in the social networking field with its ability to connect and share with people.
Selective information gathering with Circles
Easy to organize whom you follows in to the Circles depending on multiple criteria
Then the users will have to choose the updates from the specific circles that they wish to see
The updates in those specific circles are known as Streams
It has to be noted that the default Stream provides users with updates from anyone that the users have added on to the specific chosen Circle
Users now can select the streams regarding the specific circles that they wish to see
One of the major attractions that come with Google’s main stream is the customization that can be done regarding the amount of updates that the users are able to see from each circle. The slider that is present helps the users with the capability of preventing Google+ from showing the Circle’s updates. Users can also customize it by just showing a fewer selective updates only.
If the user wants to show everything from the circle, then selecting the Default Stream will do the job.
Information by using Sparks
Sparks can be considered as another important feature that can be placed on top of the information.
Sparks can be considered as a news stream that has been integrated in to Google+
The working is mainly based on searching for a term that the user is interested in and the users will be taken to a results page which shows all the results from Google+ as well as internet
Now the users can just categorize by filtering the results to just Sparks or the news stories that was founded by Google+
Thus the users can make use of the Sparks feature for keeping the news stories on the top of Google+ for particular topics that the user is interested in .This in many ways makes Sparks feature and Google+ the perfect place for selective information.
Hangouts on Air
This can be considered as one of the best-in-class features that have been ever introduced by Google+. The uses as well as the possibilities of Hangouts ‘on Air’ feature are absolutely endless.
