I've been hearing about Google+ for awhile now, but had no clue what it was all about. Well. The other day I was invited to check it out! While I've only had a few days to look it over so far, I'd day it's going to be a big competitor for Facebook.
The widget is pretty streamlined, and makes it easy to directly post a picture or a thought on your page. As a Google girl all around (Android, Gmail, etc...) I love that my Google+ links directly to my gmail account.
The basic setup is pretty familiar if you've used FBook or Twitter, there's a feed and photos. There's also 'circles' where you have the option of limiting en masse what certain people can see of your page. So your boss can't see what you did Friday night and your professional acquaintances don't get bogged down with your 'deep thoughts.'
One of the coolest things I'm super excited to try out is the Huddle. It's a get together with friends...without leaving your house! It's a group messaging with voice and video options! I can't wait to try it!
