Google+ Now Lets Users Post Videos as their Status Update

The search giant is toiling hard to make its social network a potential competitive of its biggest rival Facebook. In one of its recent initiative, Google has introduced a new feature to its relatively young social network. The new video sharing feature is an attempt to give its users an option to post videos as their status update.

Google has moved to its video sharing community YouTube, which is one of the largest video sharing communities in the world, to make its new feature worth effective.

The new video sharing feature enables users to share video updates with all those people added in their Circles. The idea is to make it easy for the people to share a video with their Circles without letting them to go to the video sharing site.

The new feature has made things as easy as clicking a button to ‘Record Video’ with results being pushed right in a user’s stream.

However, the advantage YouTube has over the social platform is its monetization. The integration of new feature won’t affect the YouTube traffic by much. The feature, however, make it easy for average users to share small videos or messages that they have filmed without the need to get their YouTube content into the social network.

The search giant is serious about making Google+ a true competitor of Facebook. Since Google+ beta launched, Google has been busy adding new features and improving the existing ones on the feedback received from users. However, Google+ still has to long way to become a real contender. The way Google is handling its social platform one can assume that the search won’t leave any stone unturned to make it popular among the masses.

Google has also introduced a new meme creator to its social network couple of days ago that enables users to upload photos with an ability to add custom text on them. This too is an impressive inclusion in the social platform by the search giant as this will help draw more traffic to the site. Memes has always been a favorite doing for many and having it within the social network is a big plus.
