10 things Google+ does better

Let’s ‘circle around’ to see what they are. Yeah, we know. Bad pun!

When you want to know about new technology, who better to offer an opinion than the founder and creator of a tech news blog? Mashable’s Pete Cashmore recently shared his thoughts on Google+ with CNN.
