The Biggest problem with Google+


Its about Google+.

Its been around 2 weeks since google+ has been launched and the battle between who is better,who is secure blah blah has started. Well its a never ending debate on weather google is better of Facebook or Microsoft or any other company. Recently my friend Harneet singh posted a status on his facebook wall that google+ better and now time to shifting . I jumped into commenting against him and favouring facebook. I was quickly analysing his comments and building up mine. During this discussion I found an intresting thing that can b a negative point about the google+ Circles which lies at the core of this new social app.
Lets start with wat google defines its Circles with- “You share different things with different people. But sharing the right things with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another and your boss in a circle all on his own – just like in real life.”Impressive and cool defination . In simple words they are trying to build up the concept of groups through circles. Just like there are groups in Facebook similarly G+ has circles. But the issue is that the circles are “one way” . You dont know in which circle I have added you and I dont know in which circle you have added me. But the actual meaning of group is that every person of the group is aware of every other person within it . They can see what other members have shared . So i feel here lies a drawback . Though this issue can be resolved easily if you have played well with G+ .
I dont know weather google has any plans to launch any other group feature in the coming time or not but I feel they are failing in the task of presenting a symmetric grouping through circles.
