    Take a tour of the Google+ private beta - Mark Zuckerberg already has...

    Last week, Google took the wraps off its latest social offering, Google+: a collection of new web services and existing tools packaged together to let users share content with the individuals and groups of their choice.

    For now, Google+ is in a closed "field trial period" - that is, an invite-only beta and a limited one at that. However, silicon.com managed to get its mitts on a +1 and signed up to the party, screengrabbing the action for your viewing pleasure.

  • Google+ Profile details

    Google+ users must first set up a Google Profile - name and gender is enough to get the ball rolling but you can also give Google lots more data about your life, should you choose, as shown above.

    Also displayed on your Google+ profile are any Google+ posts you make and any photos and videos you upload or are tagged in. Your profile shows any web content you give a +1 to as well. +1 is Google's Facebook-Like-style search recommendation feature.

    Your profile also displays thumbnails of people in your Circles, in a similar style to Twitter's Following and Followers photos.
