Bring on the game competition Google+

Ah! I knew it! I knew Google+ was going to starting adding games to their platform. When I first signed up to the whole Google+, add people to your circles idea and everyone kept saying it was like Facebook I disagreed, because Facebook has all the games. AND NOW… Google is adding games. It was bound to happen!

It wasn’t too long ago that Google started making investments and acquisitions in the social-games space. In fact, that was part of what fueled speculation that Google would launch a social network with a strong emphasis on games.

And already Facebook is responding with new gaming features in what is poised to become a heated competition between the search giant and the social-media darling.

Bring it on!

Still if you aren’t interested in games, Google+ makes it easy to ignore them. If games aren’t on the agenda for the day, your stream will stay focused on conversations with friends. This is done with a special Games only page. Games in Google+ are there when you want them and gone when you don’t. Google+ is launching with 16 games, including Zynga Poker, Bubble Island, Angry Birds, and Bejeweled Blitz.
