If so, how do you like it so far? I've been using it for a few weeks now and I still can't get used to it.
Yes, I'm a hipster douche.
My thoughts exactly. Everyone who likes will bail and say it's gay as soon as it's public.
Facebook is god like it or not use it or go outside. I'm a huge google fan but there's no room left for social networking (especially one that is stapled by private invites) facebook came and dominated and will continue to do so for a very long time.
It's like waiting outside of a club for 3 hours only to get in and realize the place has terrible music smells like cheap perfume and the drinks are 21$. You coulda been next door at the bar with no line and maybe taken a girl home, but you had to be the douche who stood in line.
thats what I'm seeing too. the Circles idea is cool, and so is the automatic upload of pics from your phone (i just wonder how many nude pics have been accidentally uploaded to Google+... a real danger of the drunken sext!)
It's pretty meh-tacular. It has some good ideas but nobody really uses it.
Its way better than Facebook, except that Facebook has the numbers.
When G+ goes public, I imagine within a few months the numbers of people actively using it will grow quickly. What I like most about it is how it fulfills the roles of both Twitter and Facebook.
Currently I actually do have a few friends who use it, most poeple I know who have G+ post stuff on both FB and G+. I hope a lot more people take this in, I enjoy having a clean UI and being able to manage who can see what better.
I use Google+ more than Facebook. It's a better platform for sharing photos. It makes it easier for me to share family photos just with family, and work photos with work etc.
I have more followers on twitter than I do on Google+, but when I post something on Google+ I get way more responses. Google+ is more like a message board I suppose
