The search giant’s new social networking project includes built-in support for tag reading, letting users with NFC phones simply read a tag to post information stored in it to their Google+ account.
Google+ was launched in beta last week and currently includes:
- Circles, a grouping feature that allows users to share information only with people within a particular circle, such as family, colleagues or friends.
- Sparks, an online sharing engine designed to allow users to strike up a conversation on topics of interest.
- Hangouts, a multi-person video service allowing users to chat online face-to-face with members of their circles.
- Mobile, providing instant uploading of photos to a private album in the cloud that can then be shared with the user’s choice of circles.
- Huddle, a group messaging experience designed to let members of a circle schedule time together.
