I have written before about Google+ (pronounced "Google Plus," the social network that is gaining lots of users. Someone described it as "like Facebook, but for grownups." Indeed, Google+ doesn't seem to have all the security problems of Facebook.
When first launched, Google+ was available only by invitation. That has now changed. Google+ is now available to anyone who has a Google account. No invitation is required.
Several new features have also been to Google+ since the application launched. Google doesn't disclose the number of Google+ users, but a Comscore report from August estimated that "in just one month, Google+ has captured 25 million visitors". It's likely that Google+ has a lot more users today and the number will grow, now that the service no longer requires invitation. Google+ is the first social service launched by Google that's actually successful.
You can learn more, or try the service for yourself, at http://www.google.com/plus
