What is Google Plus?

Google+ is a social networking site but with so much more to it than just being your typical social network. Google+ was launched in 2011 and has since been growing to be a network with hundreds of millions of active accounts.

Why is it beneficial?

Google+ is not designed like social networks such as Twitter and Facebook where the intention behind it is following someone’s life or to look at pictures of people you know etc. Google+ is designed to let you connect and build relationships with like-minded users who have the same passion as you. This is beneficial as it could open you up to whole new demographic of people who may of not shared these views or passions on Facebook or Twitter.
