So for those of you who don't know, Google+ is Google's new social networking site. It's still in it's early stages and signups are invite only. So for anyone that has used it yet, what do you think? If you have only heard of it, opinions?

I use it quite a bit. A friend of mine invited me and I caught on fast. It's really simple to use (I think) and I can forsee this becoming the next social phenomenon. Thoughts?

Personally I'm a fan. I volunteer with a bunch of middle school kids and they all ask to be my friend on facebook and I feel obligated to say yes, but then hiding all my stuff from all of them would take a while to do, so the whole circle things are really fantastic if you ask me.

I have access to it. It feels like a hybrid of twitter and facebook. You have a private inside circle that isn't shown to anyone you don't like then you have a public side which everyone can view. Despite that, it feels pretty identical to facebook.

I'm not a fan. There are too many steps for posting a status.

I'm not entirely opposed to Google monopolizing the internet. So far everything they've come out with has been good (as far as I can remember). I use Chrome, GMail, Google+, their anti-spyware software etc. So far, everything of theirs that I've used, I've liked.

Part of the motivation was actually Bing getting the Facebook deal when Google was trying to strike the deal first. Guess they like the "we'll show you who's boss" attitude.
