All of the experts agree that the Google Plus iPhone app is going to be huge when it comes out on iTunes, the Apple app store. Many people are anxiously awaiting this release. More than ten million people have already signed up for the new social network. Google Plus is creating quite a buzz among many internet users.
One of the reasons Google Plus is really catching on and becoming popular is Google Circles. With Google Circles, people can easily control what content they are sharing with other people whereas it’s not as easy to do this on Facebook.
With all of the popularity Google plus is gaining, it’s becoming a real possibility of a threat to Facebook. Previously, no one thought Facebook would face such stiff competition so soon. To counter this, Facebook was trying to challenge Google in the search engine world by integrating search on its social network platform and was working on an advertising program that could potentially threaten Google Adwords and Google Adsense.
Google has already launched an application for Android phones that is now used by close to 35% of smart phone users in America. Google has additionally requested that Apple allow an application for Google Plus on its app store.
Apple, however, is testing the patience of Google. They have not responded or clearly stated when the new app will be approved. This could cause it to be more popular, though, as users are creating buzz around the mobile application and it is already in such high demand.
Many people already use their mobile phones for such social networking websites as Facebook and Twitter. When Google Plus is readily available in a more “mobile” form, the popularity of the new social network will likely increase.
