I also have extra invites if someone needs one.


What's your twitter? I also have no idea what your real name is.

Also, if you don't have a gmail account: make one. It takes a couple seconds and you can use fake info if you want. Then go into your settings and setup mail forwarding to whatever email you want to use and forward all mail there. You don't have to use the account and G+ cares not that you just created it.

Also, since I pimped this everywhere else and I'm trying to push an agenda a bit: http://designofignorance.blogspot.com/2011/07/google-plus-modeling-real-life-social.html

http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2011/07/4-reasons-artists-are-loving-google/241970/

Lots of artists are posting their work on Google+. We got in touch with a few of them to ask about their experience so far. The response? They love it. As Carsten Bradley, an illustrator in Atlanta, Georgia, writes:

At this point, for artists it is almost like a social networking utopia. We get instant feedback on our work, and visibility far exceeding the capabilities of Facebook and Twitter combined. With the power of circles, we can share works in progress to select individuals and get immediate feedback and critiques without exposing the work publicly. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with those reasons. Maybe it's just because it's new and shiny. [But the truth of it is] that artists are really coming together here, and it's wonderful.

Daniel Ibanez, an artist and illustrator living in Fort Collins, Colorado, loves it so much he can see it becoming his primary art blog.

Here are a four things artists love about the site:

1. Google+'s image display page looks really classy. Art shines on its transparent black background. Not to pat our own backs, The Atlantic's In Focus blog has set up a camp on the site, and the results are awesome.

2. The traffic has been immense, especially relative to the rather paltry artist's private site usually receives. Eric Orchard, a cartoonist living in Toronto, says that the Google+ traffic is translating into a spike in sales of his work.

3. One reason for the increased traffic: Unlike Facebook, it's the norm on Google+ to follow people who are complete strangers. As Canadian artist Linsay Blondeau puts it, "There's no pretense of being actual 'friends.'" Of course, if you're an artist trying to market your stuff, reaching beyond the people you already know is going to be crucial.

4. Twitter, like Google+, is good for interacting with strangers. But Twitter's not a great way to display art (you can include one photo or a link to your site, but not an album like Google+ allows). Additionally, French artist Benjamin Basso points out that Google+ doesn't have a big spam problem (yet), something that can be a bit of an annoyance on Twitter. And the real humans on Google+ are a chatty bunch, giving artists an unusual opportunity to receive feedback on their work.

Below, check out our slideshow of art collected from the pages of Google+.

Maybe this is good for visual artists and not musicians? Tough call. Speaking as a public figure, G+ really isn't a step up from Facebook for me. And Facebook was a step away from the music promotion qualities of Myspace. Alas, if this is where everyone is going to end up then I will stay on board. I have no choice. I dislike it so far. I'm not trying to maintain several circles.

One good thing though, I finally figured out how to delete troll comments.

So far I haven't found Google+ superior to my unholy trinity of twitter/tumblr/flickr when it comes to marketing my art, or writing.

I don't even really know what my google+ page actually is in terms of linkage. And I don't have it set up to talk to any of my other networks to let people on those networks know that I've put something over there.

So right now it's sort of another place I have to go dump something.

In order of usage:
1. Tumblr
2. Twitter
3. Flickr
4. Wordpress blog

Big big big gap




5. Facebook/Google+

And to be honest the notification system is kind of obnoxious. I need to tweek it to where it's not updating me of every conversation someone has in a thread I comment in. You follow someone who is really popular and comment on it, you're going to get deluged. Facebook is kind of bad at that too to be honest.

For me Tumblr is the apex of creating/sharing/growing information.

Oh and the three sources I use most for following people, especially visual artists is: Tumblr. Google Reeder. And Twitter. And so far I haven't really set up my google plus as a one stop shop to acccess that stuff.

I don't get why my google reader and google plus can't be integrated some way.

I like tumblr because you can find new things from following the right agregator, and then you gateway into the artist who actually made the work.

As it is right now, there's no sign that this is a better social network. Except for people who want to categorize the stream of info they receive from separate groups of people. That's it. Me, personally, I don't care much about that.
