Most every person who uses the internet uses at least one of Google’s various apps on a regular basis. Gmail is by far the most popular web mail provider and has been since 2012. YouTube is by far the most popular video service available anywhere on the Internet and the third most popular site in the world. Google Maps is the most popular web mapping service available with over 54% of Smartphones utilizing it over a competing service. The point is clear by now – what might not be clear is how seamlessly these and all of the other apps in the Google Suite. Want to make an event in Google+? Anyone who accepts the invite has the information automatically added into Google Calendar. Need to catch up with someone using Gchat? Your Gmail contacts are already there in your Hangout list and are only a click away. And perhaps most importantly, due to a recent change, you are required to have a Google+ account to comment on YouTube videos.
