Google+ launched as fresh rival to Facebook

Google is once again attempting to take on Facebook with the launch of a mew social networking platform.

Google+ includes many of the same features offered by Facebook including photo sharing, messaging and comments while also integrating its maps and images, as well as a video chat feature.

Already heavy comparisons are being drawn between the similarity between Google+ and Facebook and follows other attempts by Google to make an impact upon Facebook’s domination of the social networking market, having launched Google Buzz and Google Wave previously.
