    Anyone heard of this? Apparently it's a very well done social networking site by, derp, Google. It sounds like it's worth checking out. Only problem is you need invites to access it, it isn't currently ready for the public.

    Didn't Google already try and fail at a social network?

    I think FB is dug in too deeply at this point in time for anyone else -- even the 'mighty' Google -- to come in with any reasonable competition for a good while yet. The tech residing in our homes and in our pockets is going to have to take another leap or two before anything revolutionary can surface.

    My opinion, anyway. ;)

    They've stopped rolling out invites, not entirely sure why.

    I read that they had reached their current trial run limit but as soon as they finish with that they will release it to the public. I really like the "circles" concept put forth - for times when I want to post a really lewd or potentially offending status but only to the people who would appreciate it (read: not family/family friends).

    Not sure how they intend to compete with Facebook this late in the game, but they do have a pretty big name attached....

    I heard about it a few days ago. It doesn't seem to be anything original.

    I hear the interface isn't as chunky as Facebook's, and it certainly looks tidier.

    Facebook wasn't original either. This has a chance to take over. I don't really care either way though :lol: logging into facebook more than once in a given month is rare for me.

    I'm definitely willing to check it out, but I don't know about the rest of the people I know. They might be slightly too hooked on fb to try something else... but we'll see.

    I'll just copy/paste what I wrote on facebook (ironically) yesterday:

    Needless to say, I like it so far. It's how facebook should be. Honestly, I hope this thing will take over. Right now it feels like you've come early to a party though, just fooling around waiting for the party to get started you know.

    Going back to facebook now already feels old. They've said they are working on a major update though, but even if facebook suddenly became just as good I would like Google to run this thing. Personally I just feel safer with Google, and because I use many Google services it's just a better fit for me.


    If you pm me your emails I can try to send you an invite :)

    It doesn't matter what you prefer, you'll end up where your friends are.
