Now On The Inside

After waiting for a week, I finally am using Google+. Even after getting an invitation from Julio Ojeda-Zapata, it still took me two days to sign up on Google+.

My impression so far is that the service has some legs to stand on. One of the best features is the use of Circles. It’s like a fine tune control on your posts giving you the ability to determine who sees your posts.

I am using a “training wheels” tool with Google Chrome browser. It is a Chrome extension called Extended Share which lets you share a post from Google+ to Facebook and/or Twitter. So far, I haven’t had any luck with getting posts to Twitter but I have been able to share posts with Facebook.

All in all, I like Google+ but it’s real value will come once Google opens its up to the public and more people I connect with on Facebook and Twitter sign up and start using the service.
