    I'm in there, but that's about it. I'm kind of waiting to see how things play out after reading this: 5 Reasons Google+ Is A Privacy Accident (Disaster?) Waiting to Happen.

    My one major reason for wanting G+ to work is that FB is banned by the PTB where I live, and I was hoping G+ wouldn't be. It was on day one though, and still remains banned. I use a VPN, but it's annoying on my mobile devices.

    Google+'s mobile settings work fine on my iPad. No issues at all. I'd rather them have an app than a website though, but I am sure it will come.

    Interesting about the following. I like the request and rejection option on FB, and never thought about it not being on Google+.

    That's what jumped out to me too - and will keep me off it. Thanks for sharing the article, Prancer.

    I think people using any free (or even some not free) websites/applications/services/etc. are deluding themselves if they think their privacy means anything. Those providing the product have to make their money somehow and it's usually by selling your info.

    I use Google as my search engine, therefore I don't use Gmail, etc. I'm not going to make tracking my every move online for them any easier.

    I don't care about Google+ or Facebook (and previously MySpace) as social networking websites don't appeal to me. I think Facebook's privacy is ridiculous, I don't expect Google+ to be any better. It's not about protecting your privacy, it's about exploiting your privacy.

    Bumping this up. Just started with google+. Seems a pretty calm place. Not much for distractions.
