What’s next for the new Google+ social network? If Google acts on its users’ requests, the ability to export data from Facebook to Google+ might be one, as well as an app store.
And one user already acted on his own request: a Chrome extension to export Google+ Stream posts to Facebook and Twitter.
Announced Tuesday, Google’s Google+ takes on Facebook in form and function. With LinkedIn serving as a social network for jobs, PCMag.com’s hands-on found Google+ to be a social network for geeks, chock full of new features and social options.
Even Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has joined Google+, although his profile page has just one update: a change to his profile picture. Larry Page also has a single public post, but Sergey Brin has yet to publicly announce himself on Google+.
Within Google+, any comments attached to a public post are themselves public, and early users attached enthusiastic comments to two posts from Vic Gundotra, Google’s senior vice president of engineering, with congratulations and feature requests. Google currently is conducting a “field trial” of the service, with a full rollout at a future date.
