I like what I read about google+, which is supposed to be better than Facebook and Twitter, HERE

Have any of you tried it?

It does look interesting. I gather we'd need to be invited by someone who is using it, though?

Yes you need to be invited as it's still in it's trial run. I got invited, but I was told that there were no more invites for the moment.

I may well switch to it though. I think it's more secure and you can skype with a group of people.

Tested the group video thing tonight with Kevn. They call it a "hangout". Promising stuff, very clear and sharp. I'm hearing only up to 6 at a time.

Well it sounds much better than Farcebook.

If any Catters would be willing to supply, I would be grateful for an invite.

The author of the article does say to email her if you'd like an invite.

Thanks for the comments. Max, maybe I'll *see* you.:-)

I have added Jack to mine.

If anybody wants an invite PM me with your Google Mail address

Should be something like yourname@googlemail.com

It looks and feel like Facebook, but has much better control on which group you put somebody in. They can't see anybody except for the people in their group. So for example if I put my wife and daughters in the family group. and they are friends with each other, we can all chat with each other and nobody else can see what we post.

So if I created a Folk group. Then I can see what people in that group post, but the other people can only see what they post, if they are friends with them. They cannot see what is posted in any other group.

Love it.

It's like Twitter and Facebook. It'll take some time before people realise how to use it. I'm in the beta but don't really use it. FB and Twitter are both attached to my browser, G+ isn't.

I can also send invites to Google+, so a PM to me with your email (you'll only get email notification of posts unless you have a gmail account) and I can send you one.

So it requires that one establish a separate Google email address in order to use it??

One of my sons is in the Beta group. I'm in no hurry to start fooling with anything new, but I'm sure that eventually I will learn more about it and perhaps opt in when I can...

I am really averse to anything Google. They are notorious for data mining anything that passes through any of their portals. There are also questions about their willingness to protect your data once they have it. Others may also be doing this but they are not as out there about it. No thank you.

Well as I said in another thread G-Mail was the most common addy used by spammers on my web site. So I banned it. I'm not likely to get involved in anything much to do with Google. They're better than Microsoft, but that's not saying a lot. MS haven't set the bar very high!
