Its a new social utility started by google, a lot like facebook but from what I am seeing there is a lot more user control. For example, "friends" can be put into several categories, friends-family-acquaintances-following, and some others. Thing is they will never know where you put them and wherever you put them kinda alters how you see there "status updates" or certain activity.

For example, I don't know Helloween as friends - but when they sent me an invite to Google+ I still added them into the same category laugh.gif

Also, when you post an update, you can choose who sees it. Public, circle, extended circles, friends, family acquaintances (which is where those categories from before come in)

Several interesting things I think are really cool, plus the "about" section the give you has some interesting stuff like "tag line" and "bragging rights".

So you have to be invited into Google+ in order to use it?

I think that they're currently just testing, and only invited people can join, atm.

Apparently they have over 10 million users already, they're all developers, single and men. Perhaps something for female GMC users (if we got any) - especially the ones looking for technicians biggrin.gif
