A much easier way of choosing who you want to share with.
although i imagine it'd be much better when i have more than one person added on there
Sent out a few invites already, it would be interesting to see how long it would take for it to kick off.
Also we should make a DiS circle
But I'm not sure how it's much different to fb friend lists.
the fact that Facebook now has a possible competitor it might mean that we see some good changes in Facebook
and Google+ will become the facebook of internet friends?
when I first got my Facebook I wasn't adding people left right and center... with Google + I seem to have automatically decided it would be my social network of choice for 'E-friends'
Current count of people in DiS circle: 8
Current count of people added to my IRL circles: 49
Current count of IRL people who are actually on it*: 0
Likely count of IRL friends who will bother with it: 3, (initially, before sacking it off after a fortnight)
*I've added a bunch of people to a bunch of circles, but how do you explicitly invite someone? Or have they been invited simply by me adding them to a circle? Or were they invited when I posted something on my, er wall(?), visible to everyone in all my circles?
then do a status update to that circle, thats why I have a circle called 'Invites' then they get an e-mail with a button enabling them to be invited.
I'm on 15 people already (11 have me in their circles too) so it's starting to pick up a bit with people posting stuff... so it looks like it has a fighting chance of surviving at the very least.
I've got circles set up with people in them. And I posted a video to all my circles. So presumably that's gone out to them and they'll get an email. Dunno whether that counts as an actual intive though.
i'm kinda hoping i've got that wrong, cos whilst i'm not fussed about it being veiwable to all folks in all my circles, i'd rather alerts didn't go out to /everyone/, cos blanket badgering of /everyone/ is pretty lame. ???
facebook seems to do this better. Yes, google plus shows who stuff is visible to, but it doesn't say what circles you shared with, it just gives you a list of 10s of peoples' names & icons. fb says what friend lists you've shared with, which is much handier.
There's a grey bit of text next to the time it was posted. That says 'limited'. And clicking on it lists names, but not circles.
Am I missing something?
If you wanna find me, the link to my Google+ profile is on my Last.fm profile, which is on my DiS profile. STALKY FUN!
'my browser isn't supported', and I so hate it when websites lock you out of a site rather than just letting you take the gamble, that I am refusing, on principle, to start using it (until I decide otherwise).
it seems to have more in common with MS Live accounts than Facebook.
isn't he dreamy?
finally found a decent guy to curl up and watch eternal sunshine with <3
I wondered who you were
was going to send a note then I saw it :)
should come through at some point id say.
not my email
a friend said he'd sent me one but it was just a link that said learn more and that 'Already invited? We've temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon.' is this what in invite is?
you do realise that the earth is overpopulated, and they have to find a way to reduce population, dont you?
how does one join anyway?
I've added Creaks, but looks like not alot will happen.
Is that your real name? If so, amazing.
unless you're a guy, in which case I will just be very thankful.
and for that reason alone you should join :)
so far it's been
John Maus - Hey Moon
Elastica - Human
Slowdive - Blue Skied An' Clear
Whatever will it be next :D
FUCK THIS SHIT! I'm bailing
How do I invite people if I do have invites?
using their e-mail address instead of circles
that's the message my friends are getting so glad it's not just them.
Seriously though, at the moment I have 1 friend who uses it and another who lurks. What's the point in a social network if you can't use it to actually interact with your friends?
I'm using at as an E-Friend social networking site at the moment & I think it fulfills that purpose pretty well although it is flawed.
but either that's not working, or my friends are all idiots.
they are only testing with a small amount of people at the minute but told me to leave my email address so that they could 'keep me posted' shouldnt be too long until its sorted id say.
i wonder will this link work https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googleplusenuk/ if it does submit your name and email address here
Add me back :D
just logged in for the first time
this is neat as heck. i dont know how to make people add me though but circles is crazy good.
in like 2007. yikes
http://gplus.to/seaninsound (wasn't sure which of these two threads was most relevant)
I'm the one holding the pint btw
is this the right link? https://plus.google.com/?tab=XX#102507919097612027699/posts
also, now i'm on it and have a profile, what do i do next?
I quite like the idea of it, but the fact anyone can just add you makes it a bit all over the place for me. I like the friend accepting option of facebook. Also, can you not 'write on someone's wall' in google+?
you can make your profile private
people who add you to circles can't see stuff you've restricted to circles but you will receive stuff from them, if you don't want to be in their circles you can block them. If you want to send someone a message do it in the good ole @ way
so can wait until lots of people +1 your update, then edit it to say '+1 this if you like rimming dogs' or something, hilarity is sure to ensue.
Forgive my ignorance, bit how do I ads you cunts?
I get the feeling this could be kinda fun in a Tumblr/Twitter sort of way, whereby I just use it to kill loads of time, and posts loads of links. Cool.
help a brother out!
If it's possible like, it said it was over capacity the other day
(thanks a lot)
Just didn't want to be left out I suppose.
Seems pretty bleak so far.
Now it is.
we could have all just stayed on Facebook.
but I don't really want ANOTHER fucking social network. I haven't even deleted my mypsace and bebo accounts yet.
if that link even works. Plus im not entirely sure how to use it yet.
got an invite? really excited to see how this pans out.
