    Default Share your Google+ thoughts

    Personally, I'm really like this. Seems like a good blend of Facebook and Twitter.

    Quick highlights:
    • You add people to "Circles", and can customize which Circles see what you post.
    • The app has "instant upload", which automatically uploads pictures to a private folder.
    • Push notifications (that actually work!).
    • Very neat design.


    Those of you who have managed to get an invite..how do you like it? What's your favorite feature(s)? Do you think it's the Facebook killer?

    Google+ snuck up on me and I've been slow to follow it. Reading some of the comments on the forum has me very curious and anxious to see what it's about. I hope that read some good things about it :

    I think all facebook ever needed was a retitled trending topics and it would have let them kill off twitter.... oh well.

    This is still a work in progress but it's better than Buzz and Orkut. They have a shot to compete w/Facebook. They just need to keep the momentum going.

    Problem I have so far is if you block someone, they can still see everything you post, etc. but they cannot comment on it.
    If I block someone it's because I don't know who the heck they are.

    Then its more like twitter in the sense that the whole world can see what you say not just your small little circle??

    I think so....
    Plus it's missing tagging photos, etc. but you can limit who sees what.
    For instance I have Friends, Tech Buddies, Android Central, Family Circles and just posted a photo that only two circles can see.
    It's basic but has a LOT of potential.
    I just don't see it being there yet.

    I watched the "This Week in Google" show yesterday. Vic Gundotra and Brad Horowitz came on and it was pretty good show and I got to know a lot about Google+ by seeing them use it and explain it. There is actually a photo tagging feature in Google+ which I saw them use.
    I got an invitation, but Google isn't letting me in at the moment. With regards to people who you block seeing all your posts; that only happens when your posts are public. If you restrict posts to circles or a few people, I don't think the people you block will be able to see them

    Something I did not think about: Obviously "Ricky Babalu" is my forum name, but when I signed up to Google+ my "real name" is listed. Not sure If there is a way to make a circle with your forum name and not your real name (hope that makes sense).

    I wouldn't worry.
    Maybe this thread can be only viewable to members with over 10 posts or something?
    This way it eliminates spam.

    You sure you didn't have the Public tag on? I've been making it a point to leave Your Circles as the default for sharing streams.

    are you guys with the mobile app getting your notifications in the status bar?

    it seems like they only come through when the app is open and the screen is unlocked.

    Do you use Farmville too? J/k

    It is overhyped as is anything that comes out to squash the big man.

    Android was overhyped too but that panned out ok.

    Google Wave fizzled lol.

    What I like about it is that it is more of a robust Twitter.
    Facebook has become so pathetic with all of it's TOS with copyrights of photos, etc.
    No Mafia Wars, Eggville, Farmville, Bullsh*tville, etc.

    No ads, (YET)

    That's why I started the thread on all of us users friending each other to help get it started.

    I like the fact that not all of your contacts will see all your posts. There are some stuff I would share with my family circle, that I won't share with AC Circle. I think that is one of the main features that will help Google+ grow.
