Talk about confusing people...
Introducing "plus.google.com" or "Google Plus" as they call it...
Is it a rehashed Google Buzz? Google Circles? Does the "plus sign" mean "+1" ?
Google Guns for Facebook with Google+ Social Network

Google Guns for Facebook with Google+ Social NetworkGoogle is trying its hand again at social networking, introducing on Tuesday a service called Google+. Currently available only to a small group of testers, its aim is to enable sharing between small groups of people.
The funny thing is Google advanced search uses the "+" (plus sign) to indicate--
"By attaching a + immediately before a word (remember, don't add a space after the +), you are telling Google to match that word precisely as you typed it. Putting double quotes around a single word will do the same thing.
Now that Google is going into the Socal Networking business, does that leave an opening for a new purely search Search Engine?
