As if I don't have enough online distractions, along comes Google's G+, Google's answer to facebook. I managed to snag an invite and have been trying it out. One neat feature is that you can set up circles of contacts: family, friends, acquaintances and custom special interest circles. So for instance you can set up a circle for your photography friends. That way comments you make to to that group don't have to be shared with everyone. You can set your comment options so that a comment only goes a specific circle. Or you can post to all your circles.

So far NO idiotic Farmville updates or apps asking to click on it to learn whether or not some friend thinks I can keep a secret. I suppose though it is only a matter of time...

Anyone else using G+? What do you think? Will you abandon Facebook or other Social Network sites?

We're using Google+ at the Journal-World. Have you added us to your circles yet? We're at

Also, I'm hoping to write up a few thoughts on G+ sometime today for the social media blog: Would be interested in hearing what you think.
