Google Plus. Facebook Equals.

“Facebook just announced via a blog post and a big media splash that it’s now mimicking Google+’s features by making it easier for users to control who sees their updates, letting users edit posts and letting users view their profile as others do.

Well, actually, Facebook’s post makes no mention of its nascent rival from the search giant, but it’s pretty clear from today’s announcement that the current king of social network and online identity is paying close attention to Google’s attempt to create a different model for online identity and sharing.

Google+ has done more than its share of mimicking Facebook — the stream and the inclusion of games. But it has also taken steps to differentiate itself from Facebook, most clearly in rejecting the binary Friend model at the heart of Facebook.”
