Circles vs. lists, +1 vs. "like" buttons, Hangouts vs. Video Calling: the Google+ v. Facebook battle is in full force.

The two platforms share many features, including a profile page, groups, and friend updates. In the video above, take a look at how Facebook's new video chat service stacks up to hangouts.
