Google+ or Google Plus is social network owned by Google. It is essentially Facebook, but crappier. After obtaining
YouTube, Google attempted to implement Google+ into YouTube and force people to get a Google+ account in order to create a YouTube account. Leafy made an early video talking about why Google+ was shit.
Google used to have a video player of its own, albeit a really crappy one. No one used it, so Google decided to just buy a better one... aka YouTube.
Later, Google created Google+ as a website to compete with Facebook. The only problem was nobody used it... So what did Google do? They forced people to sign up for a Google+ account if they wanted to make a YouTube account.
- Even though it came with a rocky start, Google+'s community feature still draws in users.
- Google+ continues to have a consistent search rate.
