Initially it was open but then they closed it when too many were signing up. Invitation will limit the inflow numbers without restricting it altogether.

I don't see lasting long as its nothing revolutionary compared to Facebook. Reason why Facebook is where it is today is the ingenious brains of Zuckerberg and Co. Things like status updates, writing on friends wall, exclusivity of networks and above all the lack of junk flashy ads is what set Facebook apart from Hi5, Friendster and Myspace.

So unless Google does something extraordinary to outgun Facebook, its a goner already. So far the Circles are a big + but heck, Facebook can put that up easily.

But agree this whole "invite" business is annoying. Obviously they haven't learnt from Wave. Why not release a complete polished product instead of half done buggy stuff? If Facebook can, why can't they? It reflects badly on Google in my opinion, a company known for having a teams of top notch engineers behind its products.

There is going to be a change soon on Google’s recently launched social network, Google Plus.
As of now, users of this social network are allowed to keep their profiles private if they desire to do so.
However, come 31st July and these private profiles will be deleted. This move is likely to upset users, who wish to keep their profiles private as they are allowed to do on Facebook.

It also says:

Quote:
It should be a consolation to users to know, that the only data they are required to provide on the public profile includes the full name and gender of the user. The user will have the ability to delete or hide any other information from the profile.

Another point in defense of Google is the fact, that even with Facebook, the users name gender and profile picture of the user is freely available to all, even with private settings since the last year or so.


Mark Zuckerberg had then explained that “The site has actually never worked in a way that you sign up and the only people who can see you or your information were your friends. The reason for that is … if only the people who were already your friends on the site could see your information then it would be really difficult to connect with your actual friends and actually be able to have meaningful interactions with them.”

Hence, even though Google has decided to disallow private profiles, they are not actually affecting the user’s privacy any more than Facebook is already doing.
If that's the case, then i don't find any reason to be worried about our G+ account being public

Default গুগল প্লাস এখন সোশাল নেটওয়ার্কিংয়ের 'আলাস্কা'

আলাস্কায় সবচেয়ে বেশি অভাব নারী সঙ্গীর। সেখানে পুরষের সংখ্যাধিক্য। আর বর্তমানে সার্চ জায়ান্ট গুগলের সোশাল নেটওয়ার্কিং সাইট গুগল প্লাস নেটওয়ার্কিং জগতের ‘আলাস্কা’ বলেই জরিপের ফল বলছে। খবর এমএসএনবিসি-এর।

সংবাদমাধ্যমটি জানিয়েছে, সোশাল নেটওয়ার্কিং সাইট হিসেবে গুগল প্লাস চালু হবার এক মাস পার না হতেই এ সাইট ব্যবহারকারী ১ কোটির মাইলফলক ছাড়িয়েছে। কিন্তু গুগল প্লাসের ইউজার ডেমোগ্রাফি দেখাচ্ছে, এ সাইটটি একরকম নারী বিবর্জিত।

জানা গেছে, গুগল প্লাস ব্যবহারকাদের মধ্যে পুরষের হার শতকরা ৭৩ ভাগ।


এদিকে, সাইট বিশ্লেষকরা বলছেন, গুগল প্লাস সাইটটি হবে সোশাল নেটওয়ার্কিং জায়ান্ট ফেসবুকের প্রতিদ্বন্দ্বি। কিন্তু ফেসবুকের জরিপে দেখা গেছে, সেখানে নারী ব্যবহারকারীর সংখ্যাই বেশি।

সংবাদমাধ্যমটি জানিয়েছে, গুগল প্লাসে নারী ব্যবহারকারী কম হবার কারণে গুগলকে ভুগতে হবে বলেও বিশ্লেষকরা আশঙ্কা প্রকাশ করেছেন।

সংবাদমাধ্যমটি জানিয়েছে, গুগল প্লাস সাইটটিতে প্রযুক্তির ব্যবহার অনেক বেশি হয়েছে। এ ছাড়াও সার্কেল, স্ট্রিম নামের নতুন ধারণা অনেক নারীর কাছেই বোধগম্য হয়নি। তাই গুগল প্লাসের প্রযুক্তিভীতিই এ সাইটটিকে ‘আলাস্কা’ বানিয়ে দিয়েছে।

I feel google+ might actually will make it as a successful alternative to Facebook. The most important feature is circles. Many of us are afraid to add our family to FB because we dont want them invading our life. Now we can add everyone without fearing our privacy.( even though you might stream on wrong channel accidentally )

Ps: if you need google+ invite pm me your email.

Default সেপ্টেম্বরেই নতুন চেহারায় ফেসবুক

বিশ্বব্যাপী সামাজিক যোগাযোগে সুদীর্ঘ সময় একচ্ছত্র আধিপত্য করেছে ফেসবুক। তবে সময়টা এখন চ্যালেঞ্জিং।

কারণ এ মাধ্যমের সদ্য সদস্য গুগল প্লাস। তাই প্রতিপক্ষকে মোটেও হালকা করে দেখার সুযোগ নেই। এ সত্যটা ফেসবুকও অনুধাবন করেছে।

এরই মধ্যে নতুন এ প্রতিযোগিতা সামাল দিতে ফেসবুক তার চেহারায় আমূল পরিবর্তনে কাজ শুরু করেছে। আগামী সেপ্টেম্বরেই ‘ফেসবুক এডিশন’ নামে বহুমাত্রিক নতুন সব টুলস নিয়ে মাঠে নামার আনুষ্ঠানিক ঘোষণা দিয়েছে ফেসবুক।

তবে এ ধরনের তড়িৎ উদ্যোগের পেছনে গুগল প্লাস কাজ করছে এসত্যটা মানতে নারাজ ফেসবুক কর্তৃপক্ষ। সময়ের প্রয়োজনেই ফেসবুকের নতুন অবয়ব ফেসবুক এডিশন সম্পাদনার কাজ করছে ফেসবুকের ডিজাইন বিভাগ।

এ মুহূর্তে বিশ্বব্যাপী ফেসবুক গ্রাহকের সংখ্যা ৭৫ কোটি ছাড়িয়ে গেছে। আর ডজন খানেক আন্তর্জাতিক সংবাদমাধ্যম এখন ফেসবুকের অ্যাপলিকেশন ব্যবহার করছে। এর মধ্যে সিএনএন, দ্য ডেইলি এবং ওয়াশিংটন পোস্ট অন্যতম। অচিরেই নিউ ইয়র্ক টাইমসের সঙ্গেও নতুন আঙ্গিকে সেবা চুক্তি করবে ফেসবুক।

এরই মধ্যে সংবাদভিত্তিক লাইক বাটন অনলাইন নিউজ সাইটগুলোতে ব্যাপক সাড়া ফেলেছে। এ কারণেই ফেসবুক ব্যবসায়ীক সম্ভাবনা এবং জনপ্রিয়তা টিকিয়ে রাখতে নতুন সংস্করণ তৈরির উদ্যোগ নিয়েছে।

নতুন এ সংস্করণের মাধ্যমে ফেসবুকপ্রেমীরা খুদে আদলের ফেসবুক ব্যবহারের সার্বিক সুবিধা উপভোগ করতে পারবেন। এ প্রসঙ্গে ফেসবুক মুখপাত্র জানান, নতুন কিছু নয়। সময়ের প্রয়োজনীয় নিজেকে খানিকটা ভিন্ন আঙ্গিকে উপস্থাপন করতে চাইছে ফেসবুক।

উল্লেখ্য, সামাজিক নেটওয়ার্কিং সাইটগুলো বিজ্ঞাপনী বার্তার বিনিময়ে আর্থিক যোগান পেয়ে থাকে। এ ব্যবসায় অ্যাপলিকেশন টুলস হচ্ছে আয়ের অন্যতম মাধ্যম। তাই খানিকটা বাণিজ্যিক চাহিদা এবং সহযোগীতার উদ্দেশ্য নিজের পুরনো অবয়ব বদলে নিতেই আসছে ফেসবুকে নতুন সংস্করণ।

আর্বিভাবের মাত্র কয়েক দিনেই গুগল প্লাস ১ কোটি গ্রাহকের গণ্ডি পেরিয়েছে। এর ফলে সামাজিক নেটওয়ার্ক মাধ্যমে প্রতিযোগিতার আবহ সৃষ্টি হয়েছে। এ মুহূর্তে এ দুটি সামাজিক মাধ্যম তাদের সেবায় সহজবোধ্যতা, ব্যক্তিতথ্য নিরাপত্তা, ফটো এবং ভিডিও চ্যাটে টুলসভিত্তিক অ্যাপলিকেশনের মানোন্নয়নে কৌশলগত কাজের মাধ্যমে গ্রাহকদের আকৃষ্ট করতে চাইছে।

বিশেষজ্ঞদের ভাষ্যমতে, এ প্রতিযোগিতায় প্রকৃত সুফল গ্রাহকের জন্যই বরাদ্দ। কারণ ফেসবুকের একচেটিয়া মনোভাবের কারণে গ্রাহকদের অভিযোগ অনেকটা আমলেই নেয়নি ফেসবুক। কিন্তু গুগল প্লাসের কারণে অনেকটাই নড়েচড়ে বসেছে ফেসবুক।

Default Facebook at bottom on customer satisfaction

Facebook may be one of the most popular Web sites around, but it doesn't seem to be one of the most loved.

The social network scored dead last in a new study out today that tracked customer satisfaction among a variety of Web sites and companies. Produced in partnership with analytics firm ForeSee Results, the 2011 American Customer Satisfaction Index E-Business Report analyzed how users feel about news sites, search engines, and social networks.

Although Facebook's reputation actually grew 3 percent from last year to reach 66 out of 100, the site was at the bottom of the barrel among not only social networks but all companies measured.

Responding to the study's findings, a Facebook representative sent CNET the following statement:

"We take user feedback seriously, and strive to create a simple, fast, and innovative service that enables people to connect with their friends in a safe environment. More than half of our users visit Facebook every day, and we're constantly enhancing our products to offer people the best possible experience. Indeed, a report published last month by the Pew Internet and American Life Project highlighted the positive impact Facebook has had in people's lives."

Social media didn't fare very well at customer satisfaction in general, according to the study, which found it to be one of the lowest-scoring businesses tracked by the ACSI, higher only than airlines, newspapers, and pay-TV services.

Of social-media sites, Wikipedia topped the satisfaction list, with a score of 78, while YouTube took second place, with a score of 74. MySpace failed to make the cut at all this year simply because there weren't enough users to generate an accurate sampling, according to the ACSI.



(Credit: ForeSee Results)

Looking at the other categories, Google led the way among search engines, with a score of 83, up 4 percent over last year. But Microsoft's Bing was hot on its heels by scoring 82, a jump of almost 7 percent from 2010. Noting that anything above 80 is considered an excellent score, the ACSI added that Bing now holds about 17 percent of the search engine market, up from 9 percent last year.

"While Google+ is the challenger to Facebook's established dominance in the social-media sphere, in the search engine wars, Google is king, and Bing is hoping to be a contender," Larry Freed, president and CEO of ForeSee Results, said in a statement. "Last year, Google's customer satisfaction score was three points higher than Bing's. This year, that gap narrows to one point. Bing is showing it can challenge Google, in terms of revenue, market share, and the customer experience."

Among news sites, FoxNews.com took the lead with a score of 82, followed by ABCNews.com at 77 and USAToday.com at 76. The Huffington Post made its first appearance on the list among news sites, but at the very bottom, with a score of 69. Customer satisfaction with The New York Times' site dropped 4 percent this year, to 73, a figure recorded around the time the site started to launch its new metered paywall.

The ACSI index, aiming to measure satisfaction with a variety of industries and companies, is generated using information from interviews with about 70,000 customers.
