    Google+

    After a few months in production is anyone else using it? I really like the concept but most of my friends seems to be obsessed with FB. Is there a good way to find fellow CF'ers?

    I have had an account for a few months but have never really used it. I saw that very few people I knew were using it so never really took the time to get to know it. Concept seems much better than FB thought.

    Re: Google+

    I'm on there, but i havent really seen much use for it. They havent really been quick about adding new features it seems. They kind of just threw it out there and then did nothing with it. Of the people im friends with on G+, only one posts there with any consistency now.

    Facebook also took a bit from its circles idea, killing one of the few unique things it had.

    I use it often, mostly for photography stuff than personal. I don't see it being used like FB where you just ramble about nothing. There seems more of a purpose with the wall posts....

    I really like Google+, but like others have said - I don't know anybody that uses it a lot.

    Re: Google+

    ZOMBIE THREAD!!!


    I signed up with FB the month that it got released to ISU students. FB is slowly making me dislike it more and more - especially now that "old" people (old as defined by people older than me - 26) have taken over. They seem to post nothing but political stuff. FB is like the cave is here in CF.

    I've been using Google+ since it came out. My Google+ feed has slowly turned into a mix of posts by friends and an RSS feed. I actually kind of like it. There is less content posted overall, but the stuff that is posted is actually worth reading.

    There is not nearly enough Iowa State stuff on G+ though. If you post cool stuff, ISU-related or not, PM me and I'll circle you.

    Twitter is still the best, but G+ has become my second favorite social media.

    Re: Google+

    Forgot to mention...

    One thing that I have come to really like about G+ is how it syncs up so well with my Picasa albums. I was using Picasa long before G+ came out. Those albums also sync up well with my Android phone so I can access my pics easily from pretty much anywhere without taking up phone memory. As a means to share photos, G+/Picasa are infinitely better than FB.

    The dropdown at the top right of people's posts on FB is a huge help. People who do things like this too often (even if i tend to agree politically) get their subscribe settings knocked down (usually to just 'only important') pretty quickly. Cleans up my FB feed a lot, and you dont have to unfriend them to not be flooded with stuff.

    I've been doing that. I've switched a lot of people to "Only Important" but that doesn't seem to do enough (or any) filtering. I've unsubscribed from a few people.

    I think the only time FB was at its prime was during the first year of "the wall". Since then it's just become diluted by stupid stuff.

    Only time I ever use it is for the hangouts to do group video calls. Only because Skype requires a subscription ($$$) for that

    Re: Google+

    I signed up to use the picnic photo editor, haven't used it for anything else. The white on white graphics on the photo fixer are tough to see, sliders move too fast once they are clicked on. Other than that, its just a bunch of white space.
