Google Says Google+ Gathering Momentum
Google’s own take on social networking, Google+, now boasts 170 million users -- a drop in the bucket compared to Facebook’s 900 million but still a substantially large number. The site allows users to group their contacts together into "circles" based on description (e.g. friends, family, colleagues, etc.) and communicate specifically with certain spheres through webcam chats, group messaging and instantly uploaded mobile photos.
