message 2: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) Google+ looks cool, but I haven't downloaded it yet. I like the circles feature that allows you to share stuff with certain groups of people. It also has something like StumbleUpon, which is is always interesting.

message 15: by Carol (new)

Carol | 1679 comments I just signed up for Google+ Lots of circles. We'll see how it goes.


message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I'm on Google + now, but I haven't had a chance to explore properly. I'm having trouble finding people, for starters. I put in names of people I know are on there, and it doesn't bring them up.
Also, do I have this straight? I can add and follow people without their consent. If I make a public post it will not forcibly show up on their pages? There are a lot of cool authors and editors on there, but I don't want to invade their space.
I'm having the easiest time finding authors I like. Less luck with my musician-friends and GR friends.


message 17: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart Sarah, I just searched for you on Google+, but I can't find you

smetchie | 4034 comments I thought they weren't accepting new members even WITH invites. Is that wrong? I really want to check it out.

Me too Sallers. When forced to choose my evil empire, I'm with Google.

Can you PM me your address Smetch? I need to mail you some knitting goodies.


message 32: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I've given them way too much money to feel comfortable with this new thing. A part of me despises Google.


message 33: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments And another part loves it?

I will!


message 37: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Another part uses Google every day.


message 38: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart I don't get the money thing, Larry. What do you mean?


message 39: by Félix (last edited Jul 22, 2011 03:35PM) (new)

Félix (habitseven) I had a business that used Google ads. A lot of cash. Pay per click -- very difficult to track the clicks.


message 40: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart You paid google to put ads on your business?


message 41: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart Ohhhhhhhhh you used google to advertise your business, and you had to pay them for every click!

I get it now.


message 42: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Yup.


message 43: by Misha (new)

Misha (ninthwanderer) Sarah, since no one ever answered your question, I think it works like twitter or Facebook pages (as opposed to profiles) in that someone can only see your stuff if they add you to a circle, not if you add them. So I see William Shatner's posts, but he doesn't see mine because I'm following him, but he isn't following me. (Shut up. Shatner is the shiznit.)

I have to say I'm a little excited that Jo Walton circled me back. Squee! I kind of wish I could see which circles people add me to, though. I understand why that information remains private, but I'm curious.

So far, I like not having a character limit on posts and the layers of control offered by the circles. I also LOVE the ability to edit posts or comments. Hear that twitter and Facebook?


message 44: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11628 comments Anyone have some google+ love to hand out?


message 45: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) My invite never came through. :(


message 46: by Misha (new)

Misha (ninthwanderer) If you have gmail accounts, PM your email addresses to me.

There's a special 'incoming' stream (below your circles) in which everything that people that aren't in your circle share with you end up. So, if you're following Shatner and he isn't following you, and you share something with all your circles, or public, or + him, it should show up in his incoming stream.

I will resend Janice, I show it going out.

Just resent Janice.


message 49: by Carol (new)

Carol | 1679 comments I have invites to give. PM me and I'll take care of you.


message 50: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) Thanks Jim. Nothing has come through yet. I went onto the site a week or so back and tried to join. I got the message that it's in beta right now and that they would email me when it's available to the general public so I left my email. I wonder if that's the problem.
