    I have had Google+ for about 2 months now as I got an invitation when it first came about but I have hardly used it because I don't have many people on there. Well as you may know Google+ was released to the public today so anyone can get it! If you have Google+ or are thinking of getting it please add me to your circles, I'll add you back! - https://plus.google.com/107509812811844251304/posts - Also what do you all think of Google+ and do you think it will overtake Facebook?

    cheers!!

    the main drawback i can see with G+ is not being able to post on a friends 'stream' so the only way to interact with people is via the messenger or replying to a post they have made.
    this little drawback is probably the one thing that will put most people off.


    also moved this to the lounge :)

    ^ Technically, you could alter a circle or change your post settings to only include one specific person, I've done that in the past, but I have only 2 friends on G+ lol.

    Sure you can. As long as that person is following you, you can make a post specifically for them and it will show up in their stream.

    Is there a way to display an alias? No offense, but I'm not necessary keen on sharing my actual human real world name with people.

    You can display an alternate name also but they will delete accounts that dont use (what looks like) real names

    I couldn't find it in the market but I did have it backed up in TiB. If they delete me I'll probably leave it that way since I never post anything on it anyway.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention this is me, they were ok with this -

    https://plus.google.com/104225594776673985921/posts

    Because Earl LeMon is like totally my real name. ;) :D

    I keep thinking I'll add everyone to a individual circle named after their AF username, then add them also to another friends circle - but I've not gotten around to that.

    Go ahead and add me. :)

    So true, but it's nothing new especially for a Google company.
    The only thing you can do is avoid all that stuff! Easier said than done though.
