Google+ facebook's new rival

Google's first attempt at social networking was Google Buzz and that didn't work out quite so well.
Undeterred, since then Google have put social networking at their top of their agenda with chief and co-founder Larry Page sending out a memo earlier this year that future bonuses will be linked to the success of Google's social networking success. So will Google+ succeed where Buzz badly failed? Here's what you can expect to see:

Codenamed "Emerald Sea", the development of Google+ has understandably been kept very low key after the ill-fated Google Buzz not only failed to get off the ground but eventually had to settle with the US Federal Trade Commission for breaking privacy laws. Instead, Google have simply opted to announce the release of Google+ on their blog. Gmail users might have also noticed when they logged-on today, a new Contact organizing feature - it's all part of the engine driving Google+ known as Circles.
