Some may have heard of it. It's Google's counter to facebook. As of now it's invite only..... and I'm part of testing Smile Looking around about 30 minutes or so, it seems like a facebook/twitter mix. It's not a bad set up, fairly easy to understand and seems clean to look at. Some things seem odd since I don't use twitter much. but seems easy to figure out. The ability to specifically pick who you want to share what with is great. If you want to post gaming pics, lets say. You can only have those viewable to gaming friends. That option alone is kinda cool...but theres others.

So, if anyone wants an invite, post your email here or PM it to me.

I'll send an invite as soon as I can, Dan. They announced they shut down invites right after I made this post. They should be up soon.



"Vic Gundotra:
We've shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand. We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way. Thank you all for your interest!"

I've actually been looking into it a bit more. The main thing I really like about it, as sort of mentioned before, is being able to separate What you share and to who...but I wasn't sure about posts.

I figured out today (using the term "wall" so its easier to understand) you have unlimited walls. Unlike facebook that has 1 wall that everyone that makes a post that is your friend, you will see...... G+ has a wall for each "circle" you have. So, using an example: If I wanted to post something about atheism and prefered my "christian" friends not to see it, I just have to make a circle and add friends that are not easily offended. You can name the circle what ever you want, so it's easy to remember what type of people are able to see the wall in that circle. Another example. If I had added a bunch of co-workers but hated my job.....I could have a Co-Worker Circle that I only post good things about my work, and a Non-Coworker circle that all I did was talk shit about my work. Neither circle would be able to see the other circles "wall". However, You can place 1 person in more then 1 circle. So if I had someone I didn't care if they saw both, I would just add them to both circles. Also, the people in what ever circle you put them in, have no access to see what circle they are in on your list.....nor how many. They will just see your posts on their "wall" under what ever circle they have you in.

Same thing with family. If you have people in your family that are conservative or older and don't appreciate more adult joking around, just don't post on their circles wall....and they won't see it. Or if you have friends that post stupid shit all the time, make a "stupid friend" circle and you only have to view their wall when you want to Smile Same thing with people who constantly post youtube music videos all over your facebook wall.....give them their own wall and you can ignore it easier.

And to clear it up, the "wall" in G+ is called the "stream".

They just released a new option Smile Photo info.

If you use Googles Picasa, which is like photobucket, they auto upload to the G+ account the second you upload. But instead of posting, they park in a que until you get on and approve them to post, and what circle to share them with. Now the cool part....

If you upload them via mobile, it will now attach a location to the pictures. So, if someone is looking at your pic, they can click "location" and google maps shows where you were when you uploaded (in theory, you upload from where you take it). I thought that was cool. Also, there is a "camera info" tab for each picture telling you all the camera info and lighting stuff. What camera you used, if you used a flash, exposure, ISO speed.... and more. It's bad ass.

Added you Joe. Soon as invites are open again, Ill send it out. I like that it allows me to add people with out them being on the site and sets it so I can invite later.

I check the invites about 10 times a day, so as soon as they are up....everyone that asked will get one.

Then we can make a pwp chat room Smile

They completely locked new users the other day. They say it will be unlocked soon, but there is no date when. No one can send invites right now, so there are no allowed new users.

As far as page creations for businesses, there's no info on that yet or ways to set it up outside of making just a personal page and name it after a business. Right now they are strictly testing for personal users. There are no apps either yet. It's a bare-bones set up. They are slowly adding options daily, but nothing too big yet. The photo info stuff was added yesterday, today I haven't seen anything new though, so far.

I read an article that only a handful of people got original invites (mostly tech sites), they they allowed those people to invite 1 person. Then they allowed those people to invite 1 person. I got lucky to know someone who was in and he sent me an invite. About 3 hours after he did, they locked it up.


Like I said, as soon as invites go live again, I will send them all out.

If people join, I'll like it a ton more then face book. I am now following some developers that work for google, so I see their update posts on my stream daily. I don't see facebook being too impacted by G+, and won't really see much of a difference but I think G+ offers a great alternative. They still have a ton they need to add like apps and fan pages, but once everything is live.....I think it will go well. I think more people, like me, will use it along side face book as opposed to leaving facebook for it.

I do though, see facebook in the future "stealing" some of the developments that G+ is using. The circle thing in G+ is genius and that's the 1 big difference between them. Facebook would be smart, since they already have the traffic, to make an option like that to detour people from leaving.

Yeah I saw that circle thing and thought it was great. Kind of reminds me of the T-Mobile circle though.

Only thing I can say is Google has a LOT more power on the internet than Facebook does.

Yes, FB has the biggest social network but when people search for stuff what do they use?
Mostly Google. I think if they somehow integrated G+ with google somehow it could be pretty big. Pull all the social networks together.

I am really interested in how it will work once it is open to the public. You know there will be quite a bit of talk about it on FB.

The circles, aside from the name, are nothing close to the t-mobile circle. That was free calls to people in your "5"..... this is different lol.

I don't think the presence of google is going to help them with this project. Google has a shit ton of money because their hands are on a ton of internet companies and projects. Facebook has a shit ton because of....facebook. Google won't have a pull against facebook really, its a different type of group they want. Facebook will continue to strive, and google will be smaller, but better to some.

And google+ is intergrated into regular google. Same as your gmail account is on the main google page if you stay logged in. I have an AdSense, Analytics, G+, and gmail accounts.... and they are all on my main google page.
