It might be a big step for Google, but I don’t see how that’s in our advantage: some stuff is private – does Google keep that in mind when looking through comments/updates? I’ll wait to check if private option really works.
Social media like Google+ gives different benefits to people and to its users. We just need to be sure and accurate on the things that we are going to share so that we cannot have any problem since social media like this gives you a chance to share everything you have in the world wide web.
this is a forward step for Google, thus also benefits by the users? hope so it will gain to the users,
