Google+ Now Open To Teens 13 And Up

Google is opening up its social networking service Google+ to teens as of today, according to a post from Google’s VP, Product Management, Bradley Horowitz. The move puts the network in closer competition with Facebook, which also requires that individuals be at least 13 year old before creating an account.

Says Horowitz, everyone who’s old enough for a Google account (13+ in most countries), can now create a Google+ account too.
