    I watched all the videos, they did a great job of making it look mighty compelling. Yet, I'm somehow uninterested at this point.

    I think it'd take a long time to beat out facebook, just like facebook beat out myspace, but it seems to have the tools to do so. I requested an invite last night, so I'm hoping I get it, as I got a CR-48 and Google Music Beta :)

    I tried Facebook for 6 months or so because my friends were so insistent. I really dislike it. I have an Issue with their privacy breaches and policies. I deleted it in March. It was too much work for too impersonal relationships.

    I have Twitter now which is less of a chore. I will try Google+ if it's not too involved. I actually like Google Buzz.

    I'm tiring of all this social media stuff. It has some advantages and usefulness but for keeping in touch it seems to be making things more impersonal.

    I'm more Inclined to send a personal email, call or video call, and visit when I can. Using FB gave me a false sense of staying in touch. Hopefully Google does it better. If not, I'm out.

    About 60-70% of the tech news yesterday was flooded with reports on Google+, it's actually amazing if any of us mere mortals made it in at all. The major players were all brought in to ensure that they could report back on what is being done, and I have to admit... for somebody who strongly dislikes Facebook, it looks pretty interesting.

    The one thing that everybody needs to keep in mind when comparing the two is that Facebook has been around for just over 7 years now. They've had a long time to build, adapt and learn (and in some cases, ignore). Google+ can build on that experience, yes; but they're still brand new fresh out of the nursery.

    Did anyone get an invite for Google plus?? have you tried using it...If yes let me know how it is?? I have registered my email ID...waiting for an invite

    Going through the tour,I could see that most of the features are similar to what is available in Facebook. Not sure what are the new features.. If they release an andorid app for phones & tablets it would be great!!!

    Facebook has been nice for me in some ways. I have got back in touch with some long lost friends. Also found a couple of ex-girlfriends, LOL. They found me, in fact. However, it will be great to have a less public alternative like this.

    I made a dummy google account, sign in and invite yourself:

    Google ID: gplusinviter@gmail.com
    Password: inviteplease


    Please don't change the password so that others can use it, too.



    EDIT: Google took down the invite system, if it ever goes back up, you guys are more than welcome to use the email and password again.

    I'm still on TWY! Next is what I've been waiting for.

    I need an invite since I don't have Facebook. I'm a social outcast.
