As usual, the MeetUp group gathered at CKCK at Ray’s IT Park, Kolkata at about 8:45 a.m. to attend the 42nd Kolkata Chapter of Social Media Breakfast Session. The discussion centered on the topic “Google has shrunk your world in a toolbar”. Each and every member was enthusiastic to contribute with their personal experiences and opinions. Since Google+ is an entirely new concept, everyone was quite eager to know how successful it is going to be and what are the salient features of the G+ toolbar.
