"Google+ Opens To Everyone, Adds Search, Expands Hangouts"
From a Post on Search Engine Land by Danny Sullivan:
After three months, anyone who wants in to the Google+ social network can now get in. The company announced the news today on its blog, along with a new Google+ search feature and expanded functionality for hangouts’.
Danny points out that also available today is the ability to search through Google+ content and:
- Participate in Google Hangouts from smartphones. As of today, only available on Android 2.3 phones.
- Ability to “Broadcast” a Hangout (aka On Air)
If your hangout reaches capacity others will be able to watch the discussion but not participate.
3. A bunch of Google+ APIs
All of the details/links in Danny’s SEL story.
Finally, today’s Google+ announcements come after a bunch of new Facebook features were announced last week and the expectation that more tools and services will be demonstrated at Facebook’s “F8” developers conference scheduled to take place later this week.
