Post to this Twitter has also included five new languages for tweets. Now, it’s the turn for Google to launch first application programming interface (API) for its social networking initiative Google+.

Google+ allows its users to classify their friends into circles, features that has influenced Facebook to launch “Smart Friend List” feature. Another valuable feature called “Hangout” allows maximum 20 people at a time to do Group video chat.
