How Does Google+ work

The Google+ network is designed around a system of segregated social groups (called Circles) and lets users share information with specific groups within their network, rather than sharing with all their social connections as typically seen on Facebook. Circles make it easy to categorize your colleagues, your family (primary or extended, your choice) in another, and a separate circle for your “social” friends. You can segregate the information your share by circle. For example, I am happy to share my vacation photos with my family, but I really don’t need the world at large to know that I am not at home. This may also come as a relief to young job searches who would prefer not to have their weekend activities viewed by the person they are about to sit down and interview with. You can set up as many or as varied circles as you like. While facebook has recently heightened their privacy settings, allowing users to set up their own friend categories, the google+ interface for circles makes it much easier to share the right information with the right people.
