Today’s Question: Google+

Google+ is here. Admittedly, I don’t know enough about it to know if that’s a good thing but I do want to share the news with you, in case you haven’t heard.

Here’s a write-up on today’s launch:

From the article:

Google’s new service, which now is only available to a small group of users and invitees, is designed to enable people to post status updates, share links and upload photos.

 However, what Google hopes will set its social network apart from Facebook and the smaller social networking services is that Google+ is set up to allow users to communicate within separate groups of their online friends. Instead of posting an update that goes out to everyone, Google+ enables users to create “circles” or groups, such as a user’s poker buddies, college friends, work colleagues and family members.

Now a user can communicate separately with each group.

So, what do you think? Will you try it out when it becomes fully available?

Please vote in the poll below. It’s anonymous and takes all of two seconds to complete. Thanks!
