Many of us rely on Facebook to keep in touch with far-flung family and friends. But recently a powerful competitor arrived, created by Google and fueling lots of excitement among early adopters. Google+ is similar to Facebook in many ways. You have a list of incoming posts with text, video, web links and photos from folks you know, a spot for sharing photos and a profile with personal info you choose to share. But Google+ also offers several intriguing new features that make it worth a look.
- Discounts on travel and everyday savings.
- Subscription to AARP The Magazine.
- Free membership for your spouse or partner.
