    Who has it? What comments have ye?

    So far all I can comment on is the fact I have no one in any circles :/ Only three people I know and notch/jens the minecraft guys.

    https://plus.google.com/101254111400120278683 if you want me in a TF2 circle.

    Yeah, I struggle to understand what more Google+ has, it seems exactly the same as FB

    If it's exactly the same as FB without the stupid status updates and farmville spam, count me in

    It's all a bit confusing right now but I really like how it asks you how open you want your information to be as do it. My profile.

    Yeah, people were attracted to Facebook because it was like MySpace without being MySpace. Now it's changed enough that people want an excuse to leave it for a site that's like Facebook without being Facebook. I wonder what these people expect to happen a few years from now.

    Well I have always resented Facebook's annoying crap. I deleted my first account because it was so full of people being totaly useless and immature. It's the average person's way into being a /b/tard.


    soooo this is perfect for me, all the social, none of the bullshit.



    yet.

    What's the point of a social site that no-one i know has? And, thanks to an invite system, never will.

    Facebook seems fine if you only have 50ish friends who you all know in real life. You can turn farmville notifications and all that crap off, and privacy is perfectly fine if you know what you're doing.

    Perhaps it helps that I have mature friends and don't accept friend requests from literally everyone.

    Don't be so short sighted. it's JUST been released for beta so it's still invite only. It sure as hell wont be invite only when they've ironed out all the kinks.

    facebook's privacy settings are fine if you know what you are doing, correct
    but it's so arcane and hidden and difficult to use

    g+ is really a step up in that regard

    i'm not really sure i understand circles; seems like friending someone isn't necessarily mutual? or you end up with a partial friending? i dunno

    I've heard it described as something like lists on twitter. You can view status updates of the only people in the selected circle.

    I might try it if/when it takes off. But i'm sceptical that google will manage the same mass migration that facebook did from myspace.
