Will Google Be Your New Friend?

The lucky few who scored an invitation to test Google+ got a sneak peek at Google’s take on social media. Some features built into Google+ that might make for good classroom applications include:

¦ Circles: Share items with a targeted group of people.
¦ Sparks: Get videos and articles about stuff you’re into sent directly to you.
¦ Hangouts: Pop in and out of video hangouts anytime, from anywhere.
¦ Mobile: Access all of the features of Google+ from anywhere. This feature includes an opt-in “Instant Upload” and “Huddle,” which can turn multiple conversations into one group chat. Will Google kill the all-powerful Facebook? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment on our Web site.
