Google+ is a platform for sharing, commenting and linking images.
It was launched in 2005 and it has been used by the likes of the BBC, Google, the BBC World Service and Google+ itself.
Its features include a built-in search engine, plus a photo gallery and a number of other features.
However, Google+ has recently been facing controversy over its controversial ‘social tagging’ features, which allow users to tag their images with tags like ‘friends’ and ‘family’.
What is social tagging?
When a person shares an image, a person may choose to tag it with a ‘social tag’ (or share with other people).
Social tags are typically used by users to share their photos, and they can be a useful tool in keeping track of friends, family, pets, and even their pets.
However in 2017, Google changed its social tagging system and now it only allows a single social tag to be shared, and users can only use a single tag in a single account.
The reason why is because it can be confusing for users who want to share a lot of images and tags, or simply want to tag specific images or tags.
The problem is, the new system is so confusing that it has led some users to leave Google+.
Google+ recently launched a new feature that lets users share a single photo or tag, with no social tagging.
However this has led to controversy, with some users complaining that they are being penalised for tagging their images.
