Google+

(redirected from Google+ Hangouts)

Google+

A social networking site from Google, introduced in 2011. Although Google+ never achieved the market share of Facebook, users have ranked it favorably. In 2015, its chat, video calling and photos services were separated out (see Google Hangouts and Google Photos). In October 2018, Google announced it would shut down Google+ because of a data vulnerability discovered earlier that year, which exposed the data of a half million users. However, it was not known if any data were actually breached.

Circles
Friends and families are stored in Circles, which display as circular icons on screen. In order to better engineer privacy and who sees what, all posts, photos and invitations are shared by dragging them into the appropriate Circle, which remembers the last selection. Friends, Acquaintances, Family and Following (whom you follow) are the defaults, but any Circle can be created. See Google+ Ripples, Google+ Sparks and Google.
