Google tries privacy friendlier attack on Facebook

Yesterday on the Official Google Blog a new social networking experience was announced. Dubbed Google+ it's similar to Facebook and Myspace in some ways, but if it works as advertised, it will give more control over privacy. You will be able to segment your friends the way you do in real life in 'circles' that won't have any connections you don't want them to have. At this point Google+ is invite only, so it's too early to tell, but it looks like it has the potential to be a winner.

Here are links to a more indepth stories by people who have already been invited into Google+:
