You’ve read our Google+ first impression. Some have liked the new network in town and made the switch. Some prefer to stick with Facebook. But from all this, the main parameter that seems to have been forgotten is the aspect of security. Is Google+ safer than Facebook?
Websense Security Labs have carried out a series of tests on Google+ and here are a few of their findings. First up, the main flaw with Google+ is that it could be prone to spam. Random people can add you on circles without your approval, unlike Facebook, where a friend request needs to be accepted. This could be used adversely by spammers to flood your page. This spam can extend to other email addresses, which are not even linked with Google.
