    I noticed last night if you pinpoint yourself, and anyone around you using google+, that has a public feed, posts, it will appear. Pretty crazy to see what some of my neighbors were up to.

    Now that plus is pretty much opened up what do you think?

    I think it's pretty smooth for the most part.
    Can't post directly to your friends' wall, just to their feed or with a personal message.
    Would be nice to have a way to share videos and pics easily. I have a "share on fb" tab for that on my bookmark.

    I'm a bit bothered by this article: http://photofocus.com/2011/07/06/goo...e-you-sign-up/

    I like it. I really hope it takes off. I think it'll be important that companies/public figures start so that you can put them in your "Follow" circle. One of the only reasons I am still on Facebook is because I like seeing what people/companies/groups I'm interested in are doing. Most of my friends' posts are stupid.

    I love the link between Picasa Web and Google+. Makes uploading pics a breeze.

    Circles is a lot easier than created Limited Profiles on Facebook. After all, some of the pics/posts I make, I don't necessarily want Mom and Dad to see.

    It sucks that they technically own everything, but whatever. If they want to use my picture in some marketing thing, I don't really care. I'm not going to put anything online that if it truly came down to it, I wouldn't mind anyone (Mom/Dad, boss, future employers, Secret Service, etc) seeing/reading.

    Ive regretted joining Facebook ever since day one when I saw my roommates relationship get torn to shreds over some picture that looked bad but wasnt ( I was there). Its pretty weird and creepy to me. I can't delete it as my Mom has taken it as her personal form of communication (another source of regret). Worst part is that while Ive never posted a damn thing, my entire life has pretty much ended up on there anyways, cause who dont you know thats not on Facebook?

    Im hoping Google+ takes off and facebook becomes myspace and I dont have to worry about that shit anymore.

    I dig the integration with Gmail and search in general. FB tried to get the email thing going before, but I don't think it ever took off. This is much more streamlined IMO

    This whole Google+ thing is interesting. I'm curious to see how it ends up competing/comparing with FB as FB already has such a large user base.

    It'll be interesting to see how it works with Android phones since Facebook is already integrated so well.

    many thanks to mud for the hook up, now need to find time when the 11m old isn't around the pc, he has a habit of pushing the pretty blue button which puts the pc to sleep

    If you need an invite, PM me. Trainwreck hooked me and I'll do the same until I run out of invites/Google stops allowing invites.

    I have invites but you are going to have to do better then 30 posts.
    People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

    Curious, but not willing to sign up. Can some one tell me why this is not a new version of Facebook? I see some cool features I guess, but I don't really see how this is all that different.

    Everything you need to know is right here. It's long but informative, and includes a lot of screenshots: http://mashable.com/2011/07/16/google-plus-guide/

    You will have no idea how beneficial or not it is to you until you start following people of interest to you (or get friends to join). Don't join and then ask 'now what'. Actively try to participate so you can see for yourself what the diff is.

    For me it will replace Twitter, FB and LinkedIn from a professional perspective. FB will become the party-zone for friends and family members after all the businesses migrate/duplicate to G+ down the road.

    PM me your gmail address and I can send an invite. After you get invite, you still might not get in right away, it seems like they are still metering. Keep clicking the link throughout the day- it will work.

    Thanks Jax for the invite.

    Seems like a sweet upgrade from FB so far...way more content control & separation of groups of people. havent figured out the photo albums yet but that actual photo viewing is way better than FB.

    We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.
