Google plus circles
A whole new concept of targeted grouping made easy to sort and manage your friends using the new html5 drag and drop, tiny animations that make it look good.
Google+ made it easy to share just to those it concerns 5 stars by me.
Google plus hangout
Superb feature that allows you to do group chat with up to 10 people. Whoever is speaking automatically gets the focus.
We can leave video message -it supports windows, mac and Linux 5 stars by me.
Google plus Huddle
Google+ huddle is a text-chat application for Android mobiles and I think iOS is also supported.Group chat is possible with any number of friends even on the go.
Gtalk is available for chatting on desktop browsers.
You are just one click away from sharing your location with your friends.
Facebook friends list
Facebook doesn’t encourage the grouping of friends but you can still create different groups using their lists feature. Managing different list is not easy as Google+.
Facebook video calling
Recently facebook introduced Video Chat feature, but I think we can’t do a group chat there. Here too we can leave a video message. Facebook
Video calling doesn't seem to support Linux yet, 3 stars only
Facebook Chat for Mobiles
Most popular Facebook feature that let you chat with friends on desktop but doesn’t provide any official app for mobile.
It provides XMPP or Jabber protocol which can be used to make custom chat application for mobile phones.
Its not possible to share your location information right from your facebook wall and also it is limited to some countries.
Do you like something, how will you express it? Privacy Concerns?
Google plus let you choose how your profile will look to others on the web in-Circle sharing gives more privacy to user.
Do you like browsing photos of your friends?
Picasa a well known online image sharing site is a sole property of Google hence we could expect a better service by Google+, and it comes true. I found Google+ giving better and faster photo browsing experience.
Still there is something missing in Google+

If you have a site then the facebook pages for your brand can literally be one of your top resources for traffic and sales. Google is planning to rollout business profiles to its new google plus.
