Finally in! This looks pretty cool. Pity I can't find a way to batch add GWJ peeps.

I'm in as well, I still need to set up some sensible profile though. Added a few goodjers here and there so far.

I just ran through about 40+ people returned on a search for GWJ as well ass added cobble GWJ to my "other names" field. That seems to be the only way to do it that I can find.

Got in as well. Looking good, but will play with it when back from my vacation.

It seems they have some good ideas here. I like being able to filter what is in the news feed. Very easy.

It has already started. Computer froze and crashed when I tried to get in. Ah well... Only Eleventybillion years to go...

So what's the difference between the tons of notifications that "Someone has added you to Google +" but going to my profile page and only see a few people have me in circles?

The profile page is slow to update, as far as I can tell. If you go to your circles, the "people who have added you" is more up-to-date I think.

I just got an invite into this, and I'm probably gonna try it, just because it's not f*cking Facebook u_u

Anyone have a spare invite? Supposedly got sent one a couple weeks ago but I never received it. Guess they had some issues.

Just sent you one Osiran. Cheers.

Sweet, thanks PaladinTom!

I saw this in a different post so apologies if it's been posted here as well:

Everyone should add (if they are comfortable doing so) GWJ to their other names field in their G+ profile.

And if you're just now starting G+, do a search for GWJ to find other GWJers.

I just got into G+, so I hope people don't mind me circling like a madman.

likewise, just signed up t'other day. added stevenmack @ GWJ as an alternative name.

And the Goodjer+ circle grows ever larger...

I'm about to go on a GWJ adding spree.

Is anyone digging G+ enough to completely abandon facebook? If so what feature(s) are motivating you to do so?

Managing your virtual presence on even one of these things seems more work than I want to partake in - particularly with the time investment, gossip, drama, and stalking I observe others getting involved in on FB. I can not imagine putting in the time to handle both fb and g+ so if for some reason I ever do want to take one up it looks like it's basically a matter of which company's advertising division I want to sell my soul to :|.

FWIW I can't wait for my wife to embrace G+ more fully (which will only happen when her friends do, etc. etc.) so that I can ditch Facebook. G+ is so much nicer to use. I feel much more in control of my own privacy settings on G+, something I most assuredly do not on FB. Only recently I found out that it took all my contacts from my android phone - complete with phonenumbers - and put them into my facebook. And of course, everyone that has me as a contact on their phone and uses FB now has my telephone number up there too. Not a situation I'm comfortable with at all. So far, G+ seems a lot more secure in that department.

Edit: Also, if anyone wants an invite, I apparently have 150 of them.

I've got to keep my FB, since it's tied to some work stuff as well, but I barely use it anymore. G+ has taken about 10% of the traffic, but most of it's gone over to twitter.

I abandoned FB a year ago, and spend most of my social network minutes consuming twitter. I think the promise of Google + is very strong, particularly as a result of the circles component that allows users to consume what they want (publicly) and share to whom they want (public/private).
