Hey, so i think we have all gotten tired of Google+ threads and after reading multiple suggestions on making an official thread, lets make this one it.

If you have android there is a very good app,
the ios one is apparently being reviewed by apple and should be released soon

Heres a good list of why Google+ can become better than facebook, credits to SamTotman for writing it

Quote by SamTotman
The voice and video chat is a lot more fluid.
There are no ads on G+.
Facebook cares not for your privacy (those ads are targeted at you based on your personal info)
It's a lot more appealing to look at with such a simple and minimalistic design.
You can choose the people from your "circles" that you want to share certain things with, on facebook you are limited to everyone.
There is a built-in photo editor.
You can resize the chat window.
The chat actually works.
You can disable notifications ("mute") for particular threads if you are no longer interested in updates.
Seemless integration with gmail and android.
You can disable comments for a particular posting.
You can edit your comments.
It's not facebook.



if you are willing to send out invites, then say so and ill add you to the giving list:

Invite giving members, PM any of us with your email and we will invite you when we get a chance:

EDIT: Since I've got a post on the first page, and since I'm tired of being such a nice guy and re-posting it

Let's make a list of our profiles in the OP so we can all add each other and google+ won't be so desolate.

I can also send out invites.

I dont know if thats a good move, posting facebook profile and twitter profile info always results in a closed thread

Is Google+ more forum like than Facebook?

Considering the "+1" feature, I'm gunna say yes... although I'm no expert.

EDIT: Am I the only one who finds Google+ a little empty? We need to devise a way to get around the "no info posting" barrier. Either that or I need to get some real friends

Oh well, I invite a few of my friends, hopefully they'll come...

Beats me, my biggest circle has <1 people.

My biggest circle has 50ish

Also, if someone creates a post and links to it here for everyone to access, UGers could comment on it, and then proceed to add everyone who comments. Makes it a lot easier.

Google has not responded to requests for a list of the most common user complaints, or what, or how many, changes to Google+ are coming this week.

I agree with the comment thing. My UG circle is very barren.

Add me to the list I'm still giving out invites as well.
And can you maybe use the word "plus" in the op or title to help the searchbar? I'm fairly sure it ignores + as a search guideline.

Nope, invite to your hearts desire.
