    Default Google Plus

    Has anyone been using the new social networking site Google Plus? I signed up a few weeks ago and was wondering what you all think about it. I like it pretty well so far and to me it's nearly identical to facebook in the way it's set up.

    So far I have 20 people added so I wouldn't say there are a ton. But I think it's worth trying out.

    Havenīt joined it and canīt see me bothering. Facebook is MORE than enough social networking for me. I havenīt ever used Twitter so Google Plus can go whistle.

    I think google plus will be more of a webmasters social networking tool, Facebook has so much traction, that everyone is on it - and people join up and use it.. because all their friends are on it.

    I agree. Google plus will probably be used mainly by webmasters. If everyone is already on Facebook, there is no need to join a similar website (let alone having to invite all of your friends from scratch again).

    I've created an account and followed a few people, but not many are on it!

    I don't think it will take off, nice site, but it is lacking that one ingredient I look for in social networking sites... friends!

    Gonna stick around for a few more months just in case

    I think G+ will take off soon. With company pages to be launched later this year it will attract lots of companies and the regular users will follow.

    I tend to agree with FictionNet, although I have actually created a Google + account I've never begun using it, probably because there's frankly no need given that I have facebook. As for twitter, I just don't really get what all the fuss is about.

    Still sceptical about Google +, however, I'm good friends with alot of people in the European Google HQ in Dublin and they use it quite extensively. In fact it's a big part of their "Googliness", using Facebook is seen to be somehow promoting the competition.

    Think I have like 16 circles and 1 post- so basically no activity, but if you wanted to move your whole social networking experience over to G+ it probably wouldn't be the worst decision ever. I certainly wouldn't be bothered maintaining both, already feel like 1 social networking experience is too much sometimes.

    From a company point of view we haven't rolled the dice on it yet, however, I think from an SEO point of view having the + button on your site is certainly recognized by the Google Spider.

    google + and the search engine are highly linked meaning google + will get bigger. Something no online marketer cannot ignore.

    Joined it a few weeks back and to be honest don't know anyone else using it. Google turned up to the party 2 years too late I think

    Only thing it might be good for is link juice?

    the main reason I am using it is the hope that google will cache new content quicker. i assume the link are 'nofollow' but i havent checked that
