How do you like it?

How does it compare to Facebook, Twitter and the failed Google Buzz?

I'm playing with it as well, the Circles has to be the single biggest feature it has over FB...

I also love the lightness and simplicity of it (hope it stays that way) Facebook has gotten to Ad-Heavy and away from its core purpose.

Need to get more people on it, if I'm really going to switch from Facebook.

The headline from this article about it made me laugh.

YouTube - ‪Google+ Review‬‏

good overview of it.

I'm pretty stoked about it. I kinda stooped using FB awhile back. It got too lame for me(and for a lot of my friends). I like the circle idea the most as well. While the video chat is kinda cool, it doesn't really offer anything new or extranodianry to the experience for me. Other than that, I'm sold on it. If google can keep it sleek and simple they would've found success.

Nice video. Thanks for posting.
One thing about starting from scratch and with billion$ to play with... GOOG has the opportunity to build/install a software solution with capability to handle growth.
"Intuitive" seemed to be an apt description of GOOG+, particularly after wallowing around with FB.
FB went pandemic viral and has so wildly outgrown their software's capability, how will they ever fix it?
