The Main Differences Between Facebook & Google+ | vía @PlusDaily

Thanks so much to Paul Maplesden

Facebook or Google Plus?  

Facebook, once the darling of the social media world, is starting to lose its sheen. With the new restrictions on what people can see, privacy issues, increasing advertising, promoted posts and less relevant content in news feeds, many people are starting to look for alternatives.

Fortunately, there’s an interactive, well supported, rapidly growing, easy to use social network that’s ready for you right now, Google Plus. In this article, we’ll explore some of the similarities, and differences between the two networks, answer some of your questions and let you know how to make the switch.

Hang on, isn’t Google Plus a ghost town?

Google Plus has certainly had this criticism levelled at it many times in the past, and once, that might have been true. When the network first launched, it was quite tricky to find other members and interact with them. Now, that’s all changed.

In late 2012, Google Plus launched Communities, interactive forums where people with common interests could gather and discuss the things important to them; some of these communities have around 50,000 members! 
They also improved their ‘Find People’ functionality, making it easy to find former colleagues and classmates, review your existing contact lists and providing suggestions for interesting people to follow.
This, together with Google’s continued promotion and support of the network means that it’s now the second biggest social media network in the world with 340 million users active there every month.

OK, so what is the main difference between Facebook and Google Plus?

If there’s one main difference, I’d say it’s this:
  • Facebook focuses on connecting you with your existing friends and your relationships with them
  • Google Plus helps you build new connections, find interesting people and discover content that can surprise and delight you
That’s not to say that Facebook can’t help you discover new things, or that Google Plus can’t help you stay in touch with your current friends, far from it. 

Google Plus is simply setup to let you define exactly what you want to see and from whom, whilst also highlighting some of the best people, content and thinking so you can expand your interests and horizons.

How does that work? How can I control what I (and others) see in Google Plus?

When you follow people in Google Plus (just like friending them on Facebook), you can add that person to one or more Google Plus ‘Circles’. You can make these circles about anything you like: you might have one for family members, one for business colleagues, another one for people that post awesome photographs and another for popular science.
