So, what is Google+? It seems pretty surprising that Google is just now coming out with a social media component to add to all it’s other diverse features.

Google+ saw 67 million visits in November 2011 (after just launching in July 2011) and is expected to grow significantly by the end of 2012. This new social network has unique features such as Circles, Hangouts, and others that Facebook does not currently compete against.
