Google+, Circle me!

Posted by Darren Scorpio on 8:00 PM

So today I went to do a search and when I went to google I was met with the new Google+ which is now open to the public although it is still in beta it no longer is closed beta. Google+ is google's new and exciting social networking site. It is a little bit like Facebook but offers a little more features and I found it a little more simple to use. So here is a little introduction in case you have not checked it out yet.

Upon log in you will land on the home page. This is similar to Facbook's page where you can post messages and share links, photos and video. Your friends can comment on your posts as well. As you can see I only have one friend, I am a loner! so add me if you want :D

The next page is the Photos page. Here you can upload pictures you want to share with your circles or the whole world if you wish. Note that you have the option of who you want to be able to view them.

Then is the Profile page, this is what your friends and people on the web see. They can comment on your posts, look at your photos, and videos.

Then you come to the Circles page. Here is where you can add friends to different categories that are preset or you can make your own. It is easy to add a person to a category, all you do is drag and drop.

Lastly is the games page, yes it seems Google+ will also have games for you to waste your time and money on.

Posting to your stream page is easy, just type, add a photo, a link or a video and then select who you want to be able to see your post and click share.

OK that is all for now. If I think of anything more I will update this post. Oh and by the way, fair warning to all you SLers, like Facebook, Google+ requires that accounts belong to a "real" identity and will suspend your profile if your account is an avatar account. Please make sure you read the TOS and don't blame me if something goes wrong.
