I just got an invite this morning actually from someone and to be honest I have no clue what it is. I’m usually pretty resistant to technology trends…. fill me in? I really don’t understand what it is/does.

im on it, and im still trying to figure it out, and im waiting for more of my friends to get on it

im really excited to try out the “hang out” feature – where its like a group video chat

@CorgiTales: its like a more broken down and secure facebook – you put people into “circles” and then you can limit what you post to individual circles or contact each circle as a group – you don’t ask people to be your friends, you just put them in circles, but they can limit what you can see too

its like a hybrid of twitter, fb and linkedin, from what i can tell so far

It seems pretty similar to Facebook so far, but interesting to explore.  The feature that I’ve heard about most is categorizing people into different groups, with different limitations on access to one’s info.

I have only recently heard about this, but haven’t been invited that I know of.  I don’t know of anyone who uses it

I’m there but prefer FB.  Moistly cause so many of my friends don’t plan on moving & it’s not that user-friendly just yet…..

I got invited but I haven’t accepted yet–I got freaked out by that thing Google did awhile back where it defaulted you into sharing all your Reader stuff, Gchat statuses, etc. as public. I am hopelessly backward when it comes to most technology so I just opted out of the whole thing–is Google+ like that? I mean is it secure? Or is everything you do public by default?

[Although I suppose if it’s anything like FB, probably not so much…]

I’m on it as well. I haven’t spent enough time on it yet to fully utilize it. It seems kind of boring so far with only five friends.

lol sounds like kind of a lot of work. I will probably wait until everyone i know is on it and bugs me to get on before i go there.

I joined but I can’t figure out the privacy settings or how to work the damn thing in general. I’m not enthusiastic about it. Nevermind the fact that I don’t know how to get  back onto the site since I linked in through an email….

I signed up for it at the end of last week, but haven’t done much of anything with it. It isn’t exactly intuitive, and I can’t figure out if others can see which circle you put them in? I would assume they can’t, but I’m not sure.

 

I also only have like one friend on it, so maybe once I get more it will make more sense?
