While some of you have been (understandably) occupied with bar exam study and work assignments, Google announced its new social networking project, Google+, on June 28. This lead to the predictable speculation about how this latest Google foray into social network building would fare against Facebook.

However, you can still take an interactive tour on the Google+ site, and read a little about what the tech experts and bloggers are saying, while you wait for your chance to try it out. The major features are reviewed in Avi Rappoport's article this week in Information Today. For a more conceptual take on Google+ and its social network vision, read Scott Rosenberg's post on Open Salon.
