Are You On Google+ Yet?
Are you on Google+ yet? I had signed up when it first came out but there was a waiting list. I got my invitation this weekend from my husband’s cousin and I was so excited to try it out! What could be better than a new social site by Google itself?
I haven’t spent a lot of time on it since I signed up but I think it will be easier to use than Facebook. You can be more discreet setting up your own “circles” and sharing things with just the “circles” you choose. You can get creative naming your circles. For example: Social Media Geeks, People Who You Want to Know, Fun Friends, Long Lost Friends, etc.
Will I use it more than Facebook? Time will tell. It will be interesting to see how many people will go over to Google+ in the future. And how will these 2 big social networks compete? Will their even be any competition for the monster Facebook network?
Google+ also works amazingly with a Droid phone. I had uploaded pictures and it went right on to my Google+ account. I then got to choose which circles to share with. All from my phone in a matter of seconds without having to upload each picture as I have with Facebook one at a time. This will be a time-saver with taking photos from a smartphone. You can instantly share them anywhere and always will find them in your own Google account so you don’t have to save them anywhere. Unless of course you want to make a backup on a flash drive (highly recommended for family type photos, etc that you never want to lose).
