Google+, Google’s new social network, was released on Tuesday. Google+ promises to revolutionize social networking to make it more like sharing things in real life, allowing users to decide who sees what, with their new “circles” functionality.
Google+ is currently limited to a small number of users, while Google is conducting a “field trial.” Users of Google+ have largely been impressed with the new features and content that Google brings to the social networking world.
You may not be able to test Google+ yet, but don’t worry, it will soon be coming to an iOS operating system near you. There’s already an Android version of Google+ available, but Google also has plans to release an app for iOS 4 and beyond.
There’s no launch date provided, however. Google simply reads, “coming soon,” to iPhones running iOS 4 or higher, but it shouldn’t be too long before we see an iOS version of this new social network.
Unfortunately, there’s no mention at all of an iPad app, but you’ll still be able to use the iPhone version in 2x mode.
Of course, the major question is whether Google+ will be able to cement itself a place in the social networking scene, where Facebook is currently king. Will people move their social information from Facebook to Google+? Only time will tell, but a quick release of mobile versions of the social network is a step in the right direction.
