In the last few years Twitter has become quite the popular site for micro blogging but as far as what the specific functions of the site are, that it just what it really is, a micro blogging site.
While Twitter makers may have originally intended for the site to be used for communicating between friends and other types of contacts that is hardly what the site is used for today, at least not in a social sense.
To be sure, there is definitely communication going on between Twitter users but many of those users have something to sell, whether it is a product, service, or even information. This is not to say that Twitter is not useful but it is useful more in a sense of marketing than staying in contact with important individuals in your life, which is the key function of Facebook and the soon to be launched Google Plus as well.
But communicating with leads and other professionals similar to yourself is surely important and Twitter is a great way to do this. The thing is, though, Google Plus will be a great method for communicating with these types of individuals as well when it is launched and it has a feature that neither Facebook nor Twitter has that can allow you to do all of your social networking in one place, while still being able to retain your privacy. That’s right, PRIVACY! And who wouldn’t appreciate that after dealing with all of Facebook’s privacy issues?
So what makes Google Plus more private than other social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter? A simple little feature called Circles… This may be one of the most innovative features to come to social networking yet and it completely changes the rules regarding communication through social networking platforms.
The great thing about communicating with Google Plus Circles is that you can separate your friends from your family and your friends and family from your colleagues and even all of those individuals from other users that you want to build marketing relationships with, and it is even simple to do. You can easily make separate circles of friends by dragging them into the circle in which you want to put them, and then when you post updates you can determine which circle, or circles, get to see them.
Another great way to communicate using Google Plus is with the Huddle feature which allows users to turn multiple text chats all into one streamlined conversation. This makes planning with friends, family, or colleagues a whole lot easier as well as much quicker. And of course don’t forget that Google Plus users also get to use the video chat feature that it part of the Hangout application, which no other social networking sites have yet to come up with.
So, I guess the first question should not be which social networking site is better to communicate with, but rather who you want to communicate with. After that you can then determine whether Twitter or Google Plus is the best social networking site for you to communicate with.
