It is often termed as the “Social War” with Facebook and Google+ at the opposite ends. Which social networking site is better- this is an ongoing debate that is fueled by the additional features that the companies keep adding to their interfaces.

One of the major concerns that a social network faces is privacy issues. Facebook has been at the receiving end of severe criticism for its lax privacy. Google+ launched in June and recently been open to public is considered to be better at privacy control. May be that is the reason why people are flocking towards it. But there are many privacy control features that users are unaware of, and do not know that they have the power to control what they share.
