Send private direct messages to Google+ Plus friends


We are already use to concept of Direct Messages (also called DM) on Twitter and email sending. These are private messages sent directly to one person or specific people. We can do same on Google+ Plus and send private message to any friend connected on Google+ Plus. Being private, this message is only visible to you (the sender) and the friend recipient (to whom message was sent). There is no special feature or addon to implement sending of private messages on Google+ Plus service.
