Google+ it’s here

Google+ (pronounced and sometimes written as Google Plus, sometimes abbreviated as G+) is a social networking and identity service,[1][2] operated by Google Inc. The service launched on June 28, 2011 in an invite-only “field testing” phase.[3] The following day, existing users were allowed to invite friends who are over 18 years of age,[4] to the service to create their own accounts. This was suspended the next day due to an “insane demand” for accounts.[5] Currently each Google+ member has 150 invites to give out.[6] As of September 20, 2011 Google+ is open to everyone.[7]

Google+ integrates social services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and introduces new services Circles, Hangouts and Sparks.[8] Google+ is available as a web site, and will be available as a desktop application,[citation needed] and is already available as a mobile application, but only on the Android and iOS operating systems. Google+ has launched its API platform for developers, mid-September, 2011[9]. Sources such as The New York Times have declared it Google’s biggest attempt to rival the social network Facebook,[10] which had over 750 million users in 2011.[11]

Google Apps mail accounts are the only ones that cannot be used for Google+, as Google Apps doesn’t support Google Profiles yet.
