    Because Google+ is a really good social networking site. You will like it. I use it every day.

    No it is nothing like facebook. The name must already be taken on there I am assuming.

    yeah by me :D ok thanks - will have to login via pc and give it some sorting ;)

    actually, if i recall correctly, i think g+ allows you to control your links to people much more that fbook i think - ie friends/family/work etc can all be separate

    Yes you can show all or none or everything in between for each person/circle.

    i logged in to g+ on pc and went through the reg process, but it wont let me use my google name - doh - surely if it is ok for my google account, it should be ok for g+

    ive sent in the 'contest name' request - as i dont want to use the g+ feature, it is rather annoying imo - i can see my self reverting back to my old yahoo account at this rate :D

    cheers

    ...oh, the minorly funny thing is, that in the contest name detail page, it says provide link to provide confirmation of your name, so i pasted in the link to my google account details page :D

    yea g+ isnt bad, and its not like facebook. i dont use it for social networking, i have tons of papers and projects saved in my google drive i can access from anywhere. I use google hangout to video chat with friends since skype only lets 2 people chat at a time for free. also all my pictures automatically sync to my g+ account so thats a backup i have of everything in case i lost my phone or something

    I have moved this tread over to the Google forums as it is not device specific. Thanks! :)

    I'm not social. I do not follow people and could care less if they follow me. I prefer forums that are moderated and usually stay on the subject being discussed. I commit the eighth deadly sin. I mind my own business.
