The short answer is that Google+ (sometimes written as Google Plus) is Google’s foray into social networking. It’s Google’s answer to Facebook.
The longer answer is that Google+ is a collection of social products or apps. You have Stream (a newsfeed), Sparks (a recommendation engine), Hangouts (a video chat service), Huddle (a group texting service), Circles (a friend management service) and Photos. Google plans to add more products in the future.
