      Has anyone seen the new Google Plus branded the possible Facebook killer?

      I myself haven't seen it yet but I have signed up for an invitation to see if I get one to take a look. Alot of people have said they really like it and some have said that they are going to stay with Facebook.

      What are your thoughts on a new Social Networking site from Google?

      Haven't seen it yet but somehow I just can't see it being any threat to Facebook.

      I have just signed up for an invitation aswel.

      When I sent the invitation request to sign-up I looked at the URL https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googleplusenuk/

      Notice it has "fb" in now what is short for facebook? fb is. And people are saying it is the facebook killer...I think this is going to show us the future.

      I was able to create an account on Google+ since a friend of mine sent me an invite. I can say that the look of the site is nice and neat. It's also easy to share everything to everyone since you can sort which circle/list can only view your contents.
      I believe Google+ is the first to release the video calling feature since they have the feature called Hangouts where in you can set a video conferencing to couple of friends. Now I'm trying most of it's features, which are not that many.

      So far I am really liking it but not too many people on there for me to use it as much as I do facebook which is a shame to be honest. I did hear about an add on for firefox though that will allow you to send out invites to all your contacts on FB however I was unsure about doing that without their permission so left it.

      I do think if more people start using it, it will become a big hit.

      I like the fact you can seperate everyone into circles so that you can talk about family matters without others be able to read it.

      Yeah that is one thing I really liked at the start when I first started using it a few weeks ago :) I know facebook allows that but it's not as easy to do it as it is with google, and also being able to create new circles and easily add friends into them is really good aswell.

      I've found it extremely confusing the way they worded things such as "Circles"...they've made it confusing and there are not many features and navigation is not good ;(

      I have an account already on Google+ but have not used it much yet since i am having trouble in my browser showing "Chinese" language. I could not change the setting cause i could not understand this language. It was set to English before but it was automatically hanged to Chinese which is i do not know why. Will really need to figure it out.
