Another way for Google to take over the internet by making a social networking site aimed to take over Facebook the way it did to Myspace.
Guy 1: Dude, did you hear about Google+?
Guy 2: Yeah man, it's totally gonna kill Facebook.
It's pretty sweet, actually.
It's Facebook + Twitter + Tumblr. (and maybe a few other things that I haven't figured out yet)
You have a news feed, you can just follow people, and it has a reblog-type thing that makes it easy for pointless and stupid but funny things to sweep the internet faster than they ever have before. You can also +1(like) all kinds of stuff.

Ok, I'm gonna need all your emails...
... is the social networking site created by Google in 2011. It quickly reached over 10 million users in under 2 weeks becoming the fastest growing social networking site to date. It is popular for it's "circles" theme, which users credit as being a much more intuitive way of assigning different levels of permission to the different people you associate with. It is also praised for it's support of video chat with multiple users (up to 10) at one time. A first for social networking sites since it is not currently supported by Facebook and even the popular video chat service Skype makes you pay for the ability to video chat with more than one person at a time. Google+ is also boasting over 1billion posts a day despite being only 2 weeks old.
me: Are you on Google+?
my friend: Do you even have to ask?
me: Uh... yeah... kinda. You don't have to be a dick about it. You could just answer the question.
my friend: Yeah, I'm on.
me: You know, I guess I could have just searched for your name. Know what? You were right, I didn't have to ask. My bad.
my friend: No problem.
me: You know what? I'm not going to add you anyway because you are kind of a dick.
Social network beta that college kids perceive as hip and underground because of an air of exclusivity they impose on it in order to be hip and underground themselves. In actuality, Google+ is stale as of now and anyone can get an invite to the beta. It is the dull whiteness of its unpolished pages, its untried newness, and its inferiority to Facebook that summon and unite these easily aroused college students who would readily create a facade and live by it so long as it means they can root for some uprising small company piece of shit underdog self-projection in order to "make a difference," proving that they are individual snowflakes while forgetting that all snowflakes melt and that they are not yet true adults. Ironically, google is a public, mainstream corporation that should, according to collegekidphilosophy, be spat on for branching out, which is obviously a corrupt practice since it increases the income of the company -- Heavens forbid anyone makes a profit except for college kids who think they can graduate and make 80k out of college, overcoming debt with their fancy GPAs. The fact that when college students go to google.com they are forced to create a page on this social network, and, furthermore, that their pages are connected to google.com, eludes them as an instrument of deceit and oppression because they are all too busy smoking the Marijuana, listening to the dumbstep, discovering the Gräfenberg Spot, and making spreadsheets on Microsoft excel.
Used in a sentence: When Google+ is out of beta and is actually better than Facebook, which has to rely on third party Skype for its shitty video chat, the college kids will complain that it is too mainstream because it will actually be useful.
Ignorant college kid 1: I joined Google+ and deactivated my Facebook account, stick it to the Man! Facebook has no search engine!
Ignorant college kid 2: Zuckerberg is a sellout, he needs to stop adding new features to facebook. I hate public corporations with over 20,000 employees.
It was Myspace and others and then it became Facebook. We moved our photos and shit. I already feel it is enough. How about just freaking staying on Facebook now!
I don't wanna become friends with people who already became my friends twice. Just ignore Google+
