Google + Project, ya know Google's version of Facebook

Google + Project demo

Google + project is Google’s version of Facebook.

I am asking for Google + invites so if you want an invite from me just let me know.

Now of course in large part this will be a personal social network but there will also be a version for local businesses.

That means that beyond your business Twitter, Facebook, and Yellowpage accounts you will likely need a Google Plus account as well for your local Tyler business.

We will see if this Google Plus project takes flight over the next month.

You can drag and drop friends into little circles. These are your circle of friends.

So Paul Slachter goes in the “Mad Friends” circle making it go to +11 after you drop him in.

You could also have a circle for just those friends who wear liberal librarian looking glasses.

The thing I take away from this is that +1 makes it much more visually intuitive to add friends. You also can look at a feed of just your close buds and not be so distracted by your 1,000 friends from your entire graduating class. I like seeing what random people are doing sometimes but I see the value in just looking at a feed containing your inner 50 circle.

Google’s slogan is something like “don’t be evil” and Facebook is starting to be seen as the evil one.

This could be a pretty good timing move by Google but even so people realize Google is not so much the underdog.
