Look out, Facebook.  The 500-pound gorilla just entered the room.  Read the just-published “Is Google+ social media done right?” review by Joe Wilcox and Betanews.  Includes videos of key  Google+ features.  Also read about the central Google+ functions:

+Circles — online places users create to socialize and interact with different groups of people,  not everyone.

+Hangouts — multi-person video calling.

+Mobile — group messaging, location services, and photo and video uploads and sharing.

+Sparks — social sharing service.

Check out the full review here:   http://bit.ly/kuEUfs.

If I was a bigwig at Facebook, I’d be worried.  At first glance, Google+ looks very impressive.
