    I love G+. Like you it is currently my favorite social network. It is like Twitter on steroids. Facebook without family and people from high school that I never really talked to anyway.

    The thing I’m most curious about is how Google will integrate G+ into all of their other services, especially local. There is some huge potential here to be game-changer for the internet, not just social networks.

      That will be interesting to watch; Google has already taken over my calendar, email, RSS feeds… pretty soon I’ll just log in and Google will already know what I want to search for!

    Once organization and business ‘entity’ pages arrive, G+ will explode.

      If they implement a really great product, I agree. But Google’s social track record is spotty enough that I don’t think it’s a forgone conclusion.

    I’m really liking G+ as well.  From a Catholic Tech standpoint, I am meeting more and more great people sharing great things everyday.  It has become a service I am myself logging checking on several times throughout the day and moreso than Facebook at this point.

      G+ has pretty much replaced Facebook for me, which is strange, considering that I use G+ more like Twitter. I think G+ has made me realize what a mess the FB user experience really is — FB feels like a 7-year old site, while G+ feels very fresh.

        Yep…G+ has replaced FB for me as well. I’m not trying to bash FB, but everytime I visit now, it’s just uninteresting to me. People might link to a story, a video…but there’s nowhere near the engaging discussion like there is on G+.

    Google Plus seems very promising, but I hope they make it accessible to those of us who are blind and use screen reading programs.  Many of Google’s products and services are accessible to the blind, but they’ve been slow, and not everything they offer is accessible, or easy to use.
