Last fall, Google rolled out one of its largest changes of the past decade - an entirely new search algorithm, nicknamed "Hummingbird."

Google+Although Google+ has been around for over two years now, it is still a relative newcomer in the social media arena. And even the most die-hard users admit that the platform has a ways to go in terms of catching the sheer amount of users that Facebook and other stalwarts currently boast. But things are changing, and quite rapidly. As of October 2013, Google+ claimed approximately 540 million monthly active users out of 1.1 billion registered users, which is nothing to scoff at. And considering Google’s near infinitely deep pockets and stated commitment to the platform, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

Any user can share their screen to the group at any time, and documents can also be shared to the group with a few clicks. There are even lots of snazzy effects that can add functionality, fun, or both to a standard video chat. And the best part of all? It’s absolutely FREE.
