I like it.

If you want to add each other that's cool, but what I'm looking for are interesting feeds to tap in to. Not really much of a celeb gossip kinda guy, but I do like hearing from athletes, writers, and people that are in web series and the like. Post people you think would be good to follow. Also if you want to be the e-whore that has a bunch of friends, that's all cool and dandy, you can add me. Just send me a private message and I'll either send you a Google+ invite or I'll get you the info you need to add me to your circles.

Also, this isn't quite like facebook. It's not plugged up with posts about who did what on farm-ville and shit like that. It's meant to be a social feed between yourself and your circles and you can clear it up, and read what you would like by way of tapping into only certain circles at any time. You can read what your favorite athletes are doing, check with a politician you agree with, and then read your friends' posts on different subjects just by clicking on different circles, or you can look at all of them at once. It helps so that you don't have to read through 2943750 posts to find the one you were looking for in the first place. It's also very simple to use and interacts with all of your other Google stuff like calendar and the like. There are forums on there that are pretty simple to maintain, and there is also a live chat feed kinda like our chat box. It's pretty cool.

Just found this: http://www.recommendedusers.com/

I have a feeling Google is going to apply their search functionality to Google+. It will be so much nicer to search for people with similar interests by keyword rather than by name or network.

There's a Chrome extension called "Start Google+" (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... hobdcnkoip) that allows you to see your Facebook and Twitter feeds in your Google+ stream. You can view them cumulatively or individually. Also, you can use it to share what you post on Google+ to Facebook and/or Twitter simultaneously. That second part is what I like the most about it. In my experience, it has worked fairly consistently, however, Ant said he couldn't get it working and I've experienced some minor issues from time to time.

1. No More Waiting
Normal users wait in line to use SGPlus;
Priority users get speedy feed updates and photo transfers




2. The Sky is the Limit
Normal users can only transfer so much per day;
Priority users have no daily caps




3. 10x Faster Connections
Every second counts -
SGPlus will work about 10x faster




4. Support SGPlus
I started SGPlus as a weekend project
Now the servers cost $4,000+ / month!
Help keep the dream of social integration alive!
