Threat Level- Moderate
Google+ (pronounced and sometimes written as Google Plus, sometimes abbreviated as G+) is a multilingual, social media and identity service owned and operated by Google inc. It was launched on June 28, 2011. As of December 2012, it has a total of 500 million registered users of whom 235 million are active on a monthly basis. Unlike other conventional social networks which are generally accessed through a single website, Google has described Google+ as a “social layer” consisting of not just a single site, but rather an overarching “layer” which covers many of its online properties. Google plus was the answer for Facebook. Similar in its own way, but different enough not to be copy cat.
