Social media has grown at an amazing pace over the last ten years. Today, Twitter has more than 645 million users, while Facebook has connected 1.3 billion users (though an estimated 81 million of these accounts are phony). In fact, 41% of people between the ages of 18 and 34 check their Facebook page before they do anything else in the morning!

Google has had a lot of Buzz since announcing their latest social networking concept, Google Plus. Of course no one expected Facebook to just ignore it.
Last week Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the world that he would make an announcement on Wednesday, July 6. He didn’t give many details, other than to say it was about the launch of “something awesome.”
Although Facebook and Google offer very different services, they are competitors. Both provide content to inform and entertain visitors. And both are vying for time and attention from global web surfers.
Google Plus (or G+ as I like to call it) could be the “next big thing” in social networking. The company is taking a big gamble that it will be.
