XKCD cartoon: GooglePlus You may have heard a little bit of buzz about Google+ in recent weeks.

What is Google+?

Google+ is Google's latest attempt to establish itself on the social networking scene (where Facebook and Twitter currently dominate). It has many features and is a little hard to sum up in a sentence or two.

Check out Google's blog post announcing the project or Social Media Examiner's post, "How to Get Started With Google+, Your Complete Guide" for video and feature descriptions.

Initially Google+ was open by invitation-only.  It appears it may now be open to anyone with a Google account.

Do you need to rush out and establish a presence for your library in Google+?

"Not right now", says Google.

"Google is asking businesses, nonprofit groups, universities and other organizations and groups to stay out of Google+ -- for now," saying that their engineers are building a "similarly optimized buiness experience for Google+."  Take a look at this article from the LA Times for more info.
