Google+ Thoughts?

I got one lol. I am loving it.

Has anyone gotten around to using Google+? I got an invite earlier today and I am loving it. I especially like the privacy options they put in place with the circles. I put a blog post explaining in more detail lol.
Thoughts on said new Google product?

Re: google+ invites & discussion

I guess the reason I don't like it is because I'm used to facebook. It took me a while to figure out how to post something to someone elses "wall", I can't figure out how to make an album I made for my profile picture private and what not. Also it isn't even showing someone who added me to their "circle" as me being in their circle on my page even though I added them as well and crap like that. I think "+1" stuff is a pretty stupid name for it. It just seems like a very poor and buggy copy of facebook to me, nothing really new just relabeled stuff. The only thing I have really liked so far is that when you search for a page you can +1 it also on google's search engine, and I guess the circles thing can be nice but personally if I add someone as a friend I don't really care what they are allowed to see on my page, or I wouldn't have added them as a friend to begin with.

TL:DR - It's glitchy and a cheap copy of facebook.

Re: google+ invites & discussion

I like be able to specify which people go into which circle. I'll use this feature the most for people I play online games with.

Its not perfect yet. But I do like the circles. I like the idea of separating what my Friends see, What my acquaintances see, And what my boss sees. Just like in real life. I don't invite my boss into my house and drink with him. Thats what my friends do. My friends know where my house is and what is in it. My boss and acquaintances don't need to know all that. My boss doesn't need to know about that party Friday night and if the donkey survived or not. Those are for my friends. And I also like how clean it is at the moment. If it is going to stay that way time will tell. I hope it does. I like the idea of only having the content the my friends and I put there. It creates a clean social network. With no annoying app and game requests. No stories and wall posts from games cluttering up my news feed. No annoying friend finder crap in my sidebar. And that god awful new chat sidebar they just added that you cannot get rid of. I don't even use chat and it sits there and screws up FFIXER. It allows me to focus on what I really care about and joined Facebook for in the first place. Communicating with my friends. I just want a clean social network. Is that too much to ask?

Re: google+ invites & discussion

Yea I see where your going with the circles thing but like I said personally I don't need it because I'm not going to add my boss on facebook/google+ anyways. I could see the purpose for business acquaintances but isn't that what linkedin is for? Idk, never even been on the linkedin website yet but it seems popular with the business crowd, but like I said earlier I'd rather not see anything related to work anyways on my facebook because that's what I use to talk to a lot of friends lol. It does look clean, but I don't have any app and game requests because I've blocked most of the popular ones on facebook, and also took off the big sidebar thing so I'm not sure what you meant by that.

On the other hand if google+ doesn't have any apps at all or any extra little doodad things I'm not entirely sure how successful it will be, especially with the older audience who just play farmville all day (or whoever plays that game). I dunno know, it's clean I'll admit that but not anymore functional than facebook aside from circles.

Re: google+ invites & discussion

Many of my friends and I noticed this bar on the right that replaced the chat menu. It went from a little pop up frame on the right to a full frame on the page. Which changes the page itself and screws up FFIXER. And I would assume clicking "Hide Sidebar" would hide it until I used it. But It doesn't. It comes back when I reload the page. Its incredibly annoying to me especially since I never even use chat.

Ah that's weird, yea I noticed the bar but I just clicked hide sidebar and it hasn't showed its ugly face since. Try clearing the cookies or something?

Re: google+ invites & discussion

Thats a good idea. But it does it in Mint, 7 x32 and x64. In Firefox and Chrome. So Idk whats up lol. All I know is I know about 12 of my Facebook friends have the problem too.

Re: google+ invites & discussion

Oh, idk then lol. I'm using firefox 4.0.1 on 7 x64 if that helps any, and appear offline as well as hide the sidebar. You could see if abp could block it, idk.

Yeah. So far my group of friends and I think its pretty slick. But as ace points out its really about taste. If you don't mind Facebook it might not change your mind lol.
