Since I don't use these sites to promote or sell anything, I just hate on them until they become hugely popular and then I cave in, sign up and decry others for not caving in as well. This method has made it so myspace and facebook are the only networks I ever really used. I was able to avoid Multiply and yahoo360 and all that other shit this way.

I made a twitter, and I sometimes read other people's twitters, but the thought of myself trying to think up witty, ironic shit about Casey Anthony to get a fucking retweet makes me want to die. I barely even make a status update on facebook anymore. I just poke my girlfriend every day and tell her I love her every now and then so she feels important. Meanwhile I watch my friends talk about how great their lives are or try to hustle their business or show off their children and I largely just shake my head.

I just thank god we didn't have this shit when I was in high school. Think of all the mediums you can get talked shit about in nowadays.

What about second life? Does anyone use that? Maybe if I could have an avatar I would be more into this shit.

Plum,
Apologies man. I have no idea how to send out an invite. I've poked around a bit and the most sense I can make of the Google+ site at the moment is none.

I agree with this. I don't have anything important to say. Twitter is for famous people to reach their fan base on a personal level.

Anomoly: it's all but certain that you need a google account before you get an invite. I'm assuming that will change when they go live.

Neuro: G+ uses Picasa for its pictures and the feed shows pictures better than FB. Not sure if it qualifies as "better for visual artists" but it seems to have some advantages. Though, this makes me think Facebook should buy Yahoo.

Here's my G+ page:
http://t.co/5Ebo1P3

With the minimal tinkering around I've done, I'm not so sure this is something a company would want to mess with. Tough call. Especially considering how a G+ page it is operated directly from an email address (and only one email address.) So, where as I think it makes sense to have a Strange Famous page on Facebook and Twitter, and it can be maintained by separate people, it's not looking like that's good for G+.

We'll see, we'll see.

I read through this and saw no appeal in having this over facebook. more social networks? Why? (if this blows up I will see you all on there)

The group video chat thing is great u can chat with a bunch o mates at once and it figures out the volume automatically, you can drag in YouTube clips n stuff for you all to view at once. Way better than facebook/skype, wondering if they'll add some ustream style functionality into it
