Google+ is the new social network that tries to out-Facebook Facebook. On Facebook, people are either "friends" or not. Google+ makes that distinction more fluid, letting users group their contacts into smaller categories, such as relatives, co-workers, or members of a yoga class. Information can be shared selectively with each group. Google+ features several components that attempt to mimic natural human interaction. For example, to simulate sitting on your front porch, one feature allows users to declare that they're "hanging out" and interested in video chatting if a select group of people are around. Another lets users chat with a particular set of people — say, before they all meet at a concert. Sams Teach Yourself Google+ in 10 Minutes is an easy-to-use, just the facts, ma'am look at Google+. Social network users have short attention spans and want information parceled out into small, bit-sized chunks. That makes the Sams Teach Yourself in 10 Mintues series perfect for these readers. This series allows the reader to get in and out quickly and easily. The best part is that this book covers an amazing amount of ground in a short space.
