They had me at the circles.
Thanks to the great RizzoTees, I got an invite to Google+, the Internet giant’s third attempt at a social media site. After all the failure of Google Wave and Buzz, we think the Google boys and girls FINALLY got it right—creating a very simple (and Facebook-like, yes very Facebook-like) and engaging network in Google+.
After playing around with it for a few minutes, we LOVE IT! Here are our top three reasons:
- The interface and dragging and moving of profile avatars is fun.
- The idea of having different CIRCLES to sort out your gazillion friends and family members outdoes Facebook. Well, right now.
- Even though they ripped Facebook off and made some enhancements (with actual focus groups, yeah, Google!), the new network by the Google crew is just simple and not so full of that many ads.
