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?

Getting UNhooked from all that is 'online' is refreshing indeed


Agreed. It is too much of a distraction from everything else.
