    Thought I'd start a thread for users of Google+ , post your comments, likes / dislikes and any issues ..

    My first impression is that it has an easy and friendly user interface ... I like

    1. The ability to create circles .. which means you only share stuff with the members , not all and sundry.
    2. Works seamlessly with other Google products and in particular Picasa web albums
    3. You have to 'opt in' to share personal stuff.. unlike Facebook where you have to opt out.

    Dislikes

    Only one so far, 'hang out' video chat is not supported on PPC Mac.. a huge disappointment but to be expected.. it's an old OS and will soon be confined to history.. but there must be millions of PPC owners who feel left out.

    Well,got it all working,including 'hangout' just can't find M/home Fun Circle cos where it said log-in with Google name I did just that,forgetting that I'd given Jim my AOL email addy and presumably my invite is only good for that.
    Think I read someone else has same prob-what's the solution ?

    Mike.

    As I understand it, the person who 'owns' or starts the circle has to send invites to it ..

    so, lets say you start a circle called 'motorhome' , you then add the contacts to that circle by sliding them from your contacts list or entering their email addy.. that will send invites to join..

    as I said, that's just my understanding, I'm still learning ..

    Mobile phones...

    There is no native app for Blackberry and from what I've gleaned none planned.. this is a drawback for me .. and dare I say a mistake by Google.. Blackberry's are very popular..

    See if your phone is supported and get the app if it is

    It would be nice if the funsters could add their user names as i don't know their real names and get confused . I only know just a few . I have used both: "Frankie Yodeli" . Sometimes a pic doesn't help if we never met :RollEyes:
    I have created a FUN circle and have already put a few funsters in this circle but don't know who is who :Blush::Blush: ... except 2 or 3 :Doh:

    Hope to have plenty of funsters in my Fun circle::bigsmile:::bigsmile:


    Amicalement

    Been using it for a couple of weeks now. There are some nice tweaks that you can do in Chrome browser to make the whole viewing much nicer with collapsed comments and highlighting to separate posts.

    Some of them are in my stream if they are of use to people
