Facebook Vs Google Plus
Yes..google plus is out. Everyone is talking about it and wondering who is better. Well here is the box comparison between the two and I guess time will predict the winner. But its going to be a tough fight.
|Groups||Facebook calls it Lists. Its not that user friendly and
I have separated my coworkers with rest (as don’t want to share all the info
|Google plus calls it Circles. Its easy and user
friendly – drag and drop. Actually its one of the main feature of Google
|Interest||Facebook don’t have any exact features of interest. But
you can join Groups of specific interest and get the info. Again it can be
useful info to rubbish.
|Google Plus calls it Sparks. Again it searches various
blogs and group over the web and helps you to keep watch on those. Good but not
|Video Chat||Facebook just introduced their Skype feature. It is of
great quality. But you won’t be able to watch Youtube videos.
|Google calls it hangout. Nice feature and easy to do.
You can do it with complete circles or just few friends.|
|Chat||Facebook’s very popular feature. It will allow on site
users to chat. Also on mobiles its done thru various third party
|Google calls it Huddle. Can be easily done from
iphone/android phones. Groups chat are also very easy. Google uses Gtalk of
|Like something||Facebook have Thumbs up Like sign. Like is
|Google has colorful +1 sign. Its new might catch up
|Privacy Concerns||Facebook have an option of selecing different profile
of different groups. But hardly anyone know it or uses it. It also non-user
|Google lets you choose how your profile will look to
others. Circles sharing makes profiles more private.|
|Brand/Company Page||Facebook has fan page. It is very popular and every
other good brands wants to be on facebook and get more likes.
|Google Plus yet to have this feature. I don’t think it
will take long for them to add one. Need to wait and see|
|Users||Everyone is on facebook. They have first movers
advantage. Lets see how they are holding the on.
|Google Plus have all the gmail and other service users
with them. It won’t be too hard to convert to google. But will take time and
have to do well through the process.|
|Integrated Services||Facebook is a good social networking site. It needs to
add multiple service like what they did with Skype to take on
|Google is a mammoth. They have so many good services
besides search engine that facebook needs to be on their toes to beat
|online’s conclusion||Facebook is good and so far have done well. But need to really have more features and ties and one point integration tools to beat the beast.||Google needs to capture all the users of facebook and add be a one palace for your daily web access needs. Its not easy to change people mindsets (after people are used to with Facebook). It not easy but google has all the money and talent to beat the surprise billionaire.|
