    I have mixed feelings about this. I think the circles concept is an interesting way of selectively sharing information, but I don't see what is to stop facebook from integrating the google+ features before google can build their userbase. It will be interesting to see if google can provide legitimate competition.

    I can't wait to try it out (Anyone have an invite? :lol:). I'm really getting tired of Facebook, and can't wait to have a viable alternative. From what I have seen in the videos, it looks very promising. As an Android user, it would be nice to have everything integrated. I also hope this will get people away from Skype, and on to Voice, as it is MUCH better.

    Who _doesn't_ have a google account these days? They already have the user base. They just need a product good enough people actually use it.

    Google already tried a social network with google buzz and it didn't go anywhere. They are obviously taking plus more seriously, but that isn't a guarantee of success.

    Texans aren't real americans. They're the only state that can legally secede, you know.

    i beg to differ. buzz was pretty weak, but i think google is playing hard ball with this new endeavor. i log into my FB with my gmail account. if what's already my homepage (google.com) gives me all the FB abilities, i don't need to go anywhere. what will be badass is if they incorporate google voice with my homepage as well. i click firefox on my pc, and google opens. if i click the internet icon on my android phone, google opens up. when one can do everything social (text, im, email, "likes", updates, etc) from whats already their home page, google will rule the world. after FB falls, ebay will be next.

    Likely her man doesn't _allow_ her to have either.

    It's so stoners with _limited_ cognitive ability and attention span can easily pick out the important words in a sentence.

    Well ... I'm in. It's pretty cool. Definitely well layed out. The circles thing will really catch on when you start adding lots of people. It makes organizing groups very easy. It also looks so much better than Facebook. The Picasa integration for photos is awesome. I never used Picasa before but will from now on.

    It will be nice if people are willing to adopt it. I think it will only improve as people get added and their connections grow. So far I'm impressed. Oh, and invites were open earlier today, but Google has since killed the feature for whatever reason. :(
