Anybody on this yet? What does everyone think? It's sort of interesting but I can tell it needs alot of work.
If you want an invite just pm me your email address.
oh no, not here too!!
Why does everything always have to also be something else. Just sit down and shut up and do your job. You're Google. Your job is to google.
It actually sort of makes alot of sense. I read an article one time that basically said that because google is pretty much the unbeatable internet company around today, other companies have to try and take it down in more creative ways. Facebooks tactic was to make people "search" for things on facebook rather than google, the idea being that people on Facebook would go to their friends to find out about news stories and magazine articles and videos and everything from the internet rather than google. Google is obviously trying to combat this by developing their own Social Network that integrates with things like Gmail and GoogleReader and GoogleMaps and all the various Google applications people use.
We'll see how successful this is, though.
It's never going away, and is only going to get worse from here on out. People are going to be twittering from their deathbeds in sixty years and still nobody will have anything worthwhile to say. Look at me, everybody. I'm the new mayor of this hospice. Eating Jell-O through aquarium tubing lolllolololololol. OMG catheters suuuuk ! I know children under ten who have their own Facebook accounts, for fuck's sake. They will socially network until they die and they will never know what it's like not to. These children are growing up thinking "defriend" is a real word. I'm going secluded cabin shopping tomorrow.
Hey I wonder if I can get a good deal on one online.
why would i want to join a new facebook...that sounds hard

I like the whole circles concept. I also like having a lot more control over what is in my feed. Ultimately Google+ will be as good as you make it. For the most part, you are choosing the content. I can see my acquaintances circle getting full very quickly and ignored (as will the "douchenozzles I went to school with" circle).

Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
After getting one, it seems that the coolest thing with google+ imo is sparks which keeps a tab on internet developments i guess for things your interested in. so i'll put in something like tour de france and itll compile new stuff articles etc on that subject automatically
