So You've Heard of Google+ : What Exactly is There to be Excited About? - Page 2
If that's not enough to win you over, let me just add that this is all (at least, at the time of this writing) free. As in free beer.
Google+ has quite a few offerings up for mobile platforms, but one of the more subtle benefits this brings to the fray is how everything will work across different platforms.
Take, for example, how Blackberry users swear by Blackberry Messenger. Android and iOS phones are also jumping into this bandwagon, but one of the really cool perks they could plug these in with (but most probably will not) is inter-operability across the other platforms. BBM-ing someone on an iPhone 4? Forget about it.
The +Mobile suite has a good plethora of functionalities going for it: location services, cloud storage, communication and messaging services (via +Huddle). But the best take-away from it all is that you're (confidently) sure that the services that matter to you are the same across whatever you may be using at any point in time.
Integration with other Google offerings
It's no secret that Google+ is going to leverage your Google Contacts information (similar to how your Gmail and other Google services do), and that's just a very small example of how the Google+ project may use what Google already knows about you from the information that you provide to help tailor a more personalized experience for you.
A lot of Google+ can seemingly fit easily across other Google services: +Mobile location services with Google Maps, +Hangouts with YouTube (maybe watch a video together at the same time?) or Google Docs, greater freedom to blog on-the-go (and share afterwards). The list can seem endless.
So should you shift social networks?
Personally, I don't see or feel that Google+ is actually a social network. At least not in the way that Facebook, MySpace and their other siblings are fashioned.
Google+, like most other Google offerings, feels more like a collection of online applications; they just happen to be designed to exhibit social networking attributes.
There are definitely some promising content being crafted by the bright minds behind Google+, and while this might not be a Facebook-killer, it doesn't seem to be made for that anyway.
The next few weeks or months into Google+ should be pretty interesting to keep tabs on.
