Google+ and Facebook are both social networking sites that have their own special benefits. Here is a look at some of the different things you might find on these two sites. There are both positives and negatives involved with these two sites. There are big points that make these two sites different with a few similarities involved.Google Plus Vs. Facebook  The Pros and Cons of EachThe first point to see involves the user interfaces that each site has. It is easy to get around either site. Facebook uses easy to handle panels on the side of the screen. These allow a user to move from one’s wall to one’s photos among many other things on a screen.

Google+ uses an interface that is also easy to work with. This interface allows the user to move between different contacts on a site to help make it more attractive.

One Difference about the two Social networking site is that their posts come in different forms. Facebook posts all wall posts on one’s wall in a chronological order. Google+ does not use this feature. It only shows things that have been updated. This is convenient for keeping tabs on past messages but it does not necessarily put an emphasis on updates.

It is also easier to arrange friends on Google+ than Facebook. The problem that Facebook has with its friends listing is that it can be tough to organize things according to the favorites that one has. Google+, on the other hand, uses Circles. This is a feature that allows a person to arrange different people in different spaces that are devoted to certain contact groups.

One of the biggest cons of Google+ is that it does not use a search feature. Facebook does have a search function so facebook does have something that people can use to search through it. This is very ironic considering Google, Since it is such a popular name in the world for its online search engine only yet it does not have search integration in Google+.

A huge pro between both of these Social Networking site is that they have amazing and yet completely different features. Both of these Social Networking sites are easy to handle through all sorts of different features they have. Google+ has been made in such a way that inside it, we can easily access Gmail and few other functions that Google runs. In same way Facebook too has such feature, e.g we can easily send messages to others through Facebook.

However, the browser support is varied. Google+ can work well on the Google Chrome browser. Facebook needs to be supported with some add-ons to be completely compatible for different web browsers. It should not be too difficult to get an add-on set up though.

These features of Google+ and Facebook show how they are different and yet similar in some ways. Both Social Networking site use a variety of convenient features but have some drawbacks to them. Either way, it helps to compare these two options when finding something that works well for your social networking needs.

    One feature that many people will be looking at is that of security and privacy. Both companies have been in the news the past two years for issues with both.

    Besides that, however, it will be interesting to see how each of these social networks evolve over time since they would be pushing each other to, hopefully, get better.

    Something better always comes along. FB and Google+ are to busy playing cat and mouse and on who could build the better mouse trap. Yet, what they’re both lacking is, they don’t pay attention to the needs of their members.
