5 Facebook features Google plus doesn't have

After the release of Google plus, everybody is moving to Google plus from Facebook. Just in couple of days, Google plus has got millions of users. I know Goggle plus is great. But there are some lacks in Google plus. I mean there are still exist some features of Facebook that Google plus doesn't have.

From those features I have mentioned five here.

1.Brand Pages
Moving past the controversy created when Google did not outline its brand page policy for Google Plus, causing companies and organizations to create pages that were subsequently deleted. From a user standpoint, some of the information shared by brands on their Facebook pages is actually of interest and useful. It’s not all, “Please buy our product.” Google must clarify its policies on brand pages sooner, instead of later.

2.Games
Games are the thing which users love. It is pretty much a given that Google is working on a gaming platform, and that it will attempt to attract game developers that are unhappy with Facebook’s terms, but it’s not here yet. I think the people who are fans of Farmville, Scrabble and so many other games of Facebook will hardly leave Facebook.

3.Events and Birthdays
As of now, Google Plus does not offer the ability to organize events, while the feature is widely used on Facebook. Events are social, and should be part of a social network. In addition, the percentage of Facebook users who have avoided awkward conversations due to Facebook’s birthday reminders on its homepage must be staggering. Yet not only does Google Plus have no matching feature. Birthdays aren’t even part of users' Google Plus profiles. While this is certainly a minor issue and no reason to quit Google Plus, it’s also an oversight that should be attended to.

4.Photo tagging
Although photo tagging has been known to raise privacy concerns, it is also the most efficient way to let friends and contacts know when they appear in users’ photos. Overall, the interface to download and organize photos in Google Plus is well organized and easy to use, but the lack of tagging is a glaring omission, thus far.

5.Application Programming Interface
Right now, Google Plus does not play well with other applications. For example, foursquare users can have their check-ins automatically appear on Facebook, but there is no way to accomplish this on Google Plus. Google is obviously working on releasing an API, but it’s not there yet.
