Google did it. Last night a new project from Google named Google+ came out of nowhere. The project seems to have it all. From exciting features like Circles, Hangouts and Sparks to great user interface, high privacy awareness and deep integration to say the least. Google+ feels like everything is coming into place.
First things first. Here is what you should do. Watch this awesome playlist. If you didn’t make it to get an invitation yet due to the limited field trial be patient. I tried sending invites to some friends but I got a message saying that sending email invitations will be enabled soon!.
Amazing, simple and usable. It’s addictive, too.
From the way Plus handles the profile url using the user ID to visibility levels following you everywhere, Plus takes privacy very seriously. There are simple settings for notifications, profile and privacy. And of course there is Google Takeout where you can save a backup of your photos, profile information, contacts, circles, stream posts, and Buzz posts to your computer.
As I said before, it feels like everything is coming into place. You will experience deep integration with Google products coming together. There is also an Android app which will help you take full advantage of Plus with Instant Upload and Huddle. By the way there are no ads, except for the Google Maps place pages transmitted via Google Check-ins.
So, are you on Plus yet?
