Games In Google Plus
Posted by aronnirmal
Google Plus(g+) is a social networking site from Google. Currently it’s an s invitation only service. I have been using it for quiet some time and I must say most of the features are like Facebook. What makes it’s different and more likeable than Facebook is that it’s very easy to use and g+ has taken privacy very seriously so it gives complete control to the users over their content.
Having said that g+ was(tats “it was”) not as engaging as Facebook because there were no games or apps which makes Facebook user spend a lot of time on it. But not any more after unveiling g+ was only a matter of time for Google before launching games in g+. But the have taken a different approach in that. The official announcement starts like this
My family has a games closet. Inside you’ll find a few decks of cards, two decades’ worth of board games and a Twister mat for those times when we’re feeling limber. Playing games is a great way for us to spend quality time with each other (and a little healthy competition never hurt anyone either).
What google is saying is that unlike Facebook where your game activities are published in your news feed, in g+ there is a separate tab for games, If you choose not to play any games then you can easily ignore it completely concentrate on the real people.
The initial set of games include Angry Bird, Edge World etc.
If anyone need g+ invite just leave a comment.
