Google+, Google’s very own social media service, has a long way to go before even
rivaling all the other social media sites like Facebook, but it has made a name for itself by having
over 100+ million users. Not counting the top 5 Google+ users that include celebrities like Hugh
Jackman, 100+ million is a respectable number, but it begs the question: why should you switch
to Google+? Samantha Murphy of Mashable shares around an infographic showing 20 reasons
why you should switch to Google+. However, among this list of reasons, we shall only talk about
10 of them, as these 10 particular reasons are the most likely to win people over and give them a

it wouldn’t be a surprise for Google+ to have the same search features.
Google+ handles notifications in a way that you can do many things with them from within
the popup. Another great feature is that you can do those things without even being in the
8.No more friend request fatigue
Perhaps considered a boon to many. Google+ does not use friend requests like

Stated to be a reason why some users left Facebook; Google+ has less bloat to deal
with, making each page lighter and easier to deal with.
