    Google+ Anyone rocking it yet?

    Got my G+ account set up finally, and the issue I had posted about has been resolved. My name is now wide open out on Google, but so are the 10 or so other people with the same name, and the 5 or so fake accounts on every service in the universe with that name too. Mmm, noise.

    Anyone looking for G+ invites?

    I can say that so far, I quite like it. I'm not big on social networking as an idea, since it gets the paranoid tin-foil hat inside me stirring, but I can't deny the usefulness of the platform and how much I actually like the visual aesthetic of working in G+. The mobile app is really, really nice though. Years better than any Facebook/Qzone app I have used. To be fair, the Weibo and Kaixin001 apps are better, and I like the Renren app better for that network as well. On a pure Android FB vs G+ though, the G+ app stomps the FB app, even at this early stage in development, not even a contest.


    EDIT: This thread is now for talking about/discussing/gushing/hating on G+.

    I like it - once it's set up nicely I'll be inviting all my old Facebook contacts to jump across.I like the feature to open Twitter and Facebook inside G+ - and the privacy options and circles work nicely.

    They're having some problems with the Android app so far - eating rather too much power for it's own good. Hopefully they'll have it sorted before everyone gives up on it.

    I got an invite before, but the invite said I'm not actually in yet. WTF is up with that?

    ---Update---

    Edit: I'm in now~!!

    So far I added -1 , a nice bit of code to smarten up the site (background is a little creamy, making posts stand out nicely), and a couple of extensions for Chromium. Google has managed to make a big impact here - Google One extension being a major starting point - feeds and emails and now G+. Identi.ca still punches through on the OSD but has been a little quieter due to G+

    Their invitation processing was overloaded for a while. Glad you finally got in.

    The biggest advantage of Google+ = it's not Facebook.

    Not according to complaints I've been hearing - they said it was only available in the US store, won't run at all on an iPad, people are complaining it's very crashy on iOS4 and it took about a month before it was approved too!

    It was sometime last month someone told me their battery drained pretty quick after they installed it, so it's probably been cleared up by now. Anyone care to comment on this?

    Since you have a history of lying to promote your troll agenda, I think it's safe to assume any of your 'arguments' .

    Recent complaint about iOS version of Google+ crashing

    You could find better things to do with your time than make lame accusations.

    As one of the biggest trolls on the forum I doubt, however, that you will.

    I simply invited anyone with experience of the Google+ app to comment if they are using it - it's early days and I hardly expect that any version is yet fully polished.

    the delay in the app's launch may be nothing to do with quality or Apple's exhaustive test procedures.

    Normal anti-trust style behaviour from Apple.

    Like I said - you have evolved zero credibility for any statement of yours, as you are nothing but troll / agenda drive.

    You should stay on topic, rather than waste time attacking people and trolling around.
    If you feel that the above statements and reports have no credibility, then feel free to ignore them. The fact is that there were many reports earlier this month about Apple messing around and delaying the launch of the iOS versions of Google plus - and when they did serve it through their app store, they offered an unfinished version to start with - before Google managed to get it changed to the latest version.

    On the contrary, it seems to be you with the Troll agenda - stating that iOS has no issues or problems. I am confident that all Google+ apps will have some issues, as does Google+ itself. What we're interested in, here, is more whether Google can make this a serious contender for Facebook - which I hope everyone agrees needs to be toppled from the pinnacle.

    You should heed your own advice.

    Anyone can PM me for invites if they want one. I've been on the Google+ since the second or third day of it. I scored an invite using one of the many "holes" that Google had during those first few days.

    Google+ is ok, it's not the be all end all that some people seem to think it is, at least not until there are a lot more people on it. I do like how I can control how people interact with me and what information they get. To do the same, I need to have two Facebook accounts.
    Are you actually reading this? Do you think I care?

    Okay those two people got their invites. Yea it is okay... I'm just not super into the social networking thing I guess, or my friends don't post much perhaps.
