Who here is using Google+?
My minimalist side appreciates that it’s all white. I actually don’t need to focus on anything else but the content.
I love that the preview image of YouTube is so big (it seems to post 4:3 thumbnails for Vimeo), and if the thumbnail doesn’t load — you can hit “retry” and it tries to load it again.
If you make a typo, you can hit “edit” like in the screencap. You can also choose which functions to have – to disable re-sharing or comments. You also don’t need to “tag” people, you just decide with which Circles you want to share the info.
Let’s say you have a secret life, in which they don’t know you’re married.
You create the Circle: Alternate Life, in which you posts none of the married-related sharing of your life.
Or maybe you lied at work telling everyone you’re a computer scientist, but in reality you don’t know jack. You create a Circle: People Who Think I Know Computers and a Circle: People Who Know Computers. You post all your questions on computers in the PWKC Circle and re-post on PWTIKC Circles. LOL
My favorite feature would have to be being able to edit something, and disabling comments or re-sharing.
I’m a little concerned about sharing my browsing habits. LOL
Like hitting +1 on an item I’m looking for that I don’t exactly want to share with people. I mean, it’s enough that Google saves my web search habits, it makes me look like a crazy freak when I see how much I search for “a term” xD It suddenly dawns on you how much clicks you give to something.
I don’t know how much else I can share online. It’s not like I don’t spend most of my day on Facebook… in which I hardly share anything about me any more.
Are you using Google +?
