With around 20-million users making over a billion shares a day in the short time it’s been around, it certainly looks like Google+ is here to stay.

Though recent reports have shown that current users may be losing interest in the new social network, it must be remembered that Google+ is still an invite only service and as such, the moment it opens up to the public at large, it will be the buzz all over again.

From the outset, it has been clear — probably as a result of Facebook’s numerous privacy gaffes — that protecting a user’s privacy was one of the primary ways Google aimed to entice users to its service.

Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President for Engineering, stated, in the blog post announcing G+,

“…we’ve focused on the user for over a decade: liberating data, working for an open internet, and respecting people’s freedom to be who they want to be. We realise, however, that Google+ is a different kind of project, requiring a different kind of focus—on you. That’s why we’re giving you more ways to stay private or go public…”

ZoneAlarm, a consumer Internet security provider, has created this seriously simple infographic on how to fully and properly secure your Google plus profile.
