Managed to finally get into Google+.
will render an opinion after playing around with it for a few days or so.
It seems pretty cool but of course I only know about 6 people who are on it.
My "Interesting and Famous" circle currently includes only one person, Ryan Tatusko, because I'm totally at a loss as to what famous people's names to put in the search box.
I'll be interested to try the photo gallery function, but really, it seems a bit of a nuisance to start all over doing the things I already do with Facebook and Twitter. Currently my "stream" is nothing but people adding new profile pictures.
