Google Plus (or Google + if you like to use mathematical symbols to confuse others, which is what I less than 3 to do) is Google’s equivalent to Facebook.
Google Plus gives you the ability to share photos, links, chat, email and…I can’t really tell what other cool things it does yet that Facebook does not, and almost everyone I know is already on Facebook.
Anyway, when you start making connections in Google Plus, it prompts you to add people into defined “circles” including family, friends, acquaintances, and following (stalking?).
So far I’m not popular on Google Plus, but I don’t really see what the big deal is.
The stream of info pretty much looks like Facebook but not as fun.
If I wanted to chat with someone, there are 5 other ways to do that, so that’s nothing new.
I also don’t like putting people I know into categories that someone (Google) can see, or use for not evil purposes.
This is could also be a way for Google to follow us, know exactly what sites we are on, what we look like, who we hang out with, etc. (All other paranoid people are urged to see my article, Opt Out of Facebook’s Facial Recognition).
Have you tried it Google Plus yet? What do you think?
