Please tell us that you’ve heard of the Google+ Project… If you haven’t please tell us that you’re kidding!
If you don’t know what the Google+ Project is, well we can only describe it as probably the next greatest social network and service on the planet. Google formally announced this project yesterday which caused a mad frenzy across the interwebs.
Yes, we’re Google fans – so what?
Google are great at many of the things that they do but we have a feeling that thie Google+ project is going to tie in all of their existing applications and services in an aesthetically pleasing and innovative social network that is going to change the social media arena once again.
Let us know what you think…
Google Takeout is a great new feature/service included in Google+ that allows you to export your Google data. Google Takeout allows you to export all of your contacts, Google Buzz messages, Picasa Web photos and Google Profile data with just one click…
So I gave Google Takeout a quick test drive!
After logging in, you get the screen below – you have 3 options to select: ”All of your data”, “Choose services” and “Downloads”.
I decided to select which services I wanted to “Takeout”.
I selected “Add all services” and then the dashboard displayed below appeared with stats about the data it found in my active Google profiles. I then clicked on CREATE ARCHIVE.
I then clicked on the “Downloads” button and was presented with the screen below with a summary on what Google profile data had been successfully archived.
Notice the red bar next to my main profile archive which I am positive failed because of all the current changes that must be taking place in the backend for the rollout of the Google+ project…
…which must be why I got the error message below when trying to checkout my Google Takeout!
Either way Google Takeout is a great feature and one which I am sure will come in very handy for millions…
