  • So who's on Google+ so far?

    I've found suprisingly few paleo people....so far, at least in my circles, it's just David Cszonka (thrive naturally), zooko (twitter), jamie scott just joined (that paleo guy), emily deans just joined (evolutionarypsychiatry)

    me:
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/102827299002180820118/posts

    At first I didn't get it but now it's becoming clear that this could take the place of not only facebook, but also twitter and in many cases, blogs.

    So far i have my circles set up thusly:

    To read:
    G+ tips
    Read 1 (top tier priority reads across all circles - that circle only has 6 or 7 people)
    Read 2 (2nd tier priority reads across all circles - approx another 20 people)

    To post (or read if so desired)
    •all (which is absolutely everyone) who 'follows' me
    •known to me (to post stuff that only those actually known to me should know or might want to know - including trip plans, kid pics etc)
    •secular (everyone except folks known by me to be religious...don't want to start crazy debates with my atheist/freethinking rants)
    •paleo/primal/science (anyone I know through paleo/primal wether local or long distance or anyone interested in nutrition-y, science-y posts)
    •birth and lactation professionals (or others similarly interested)
    •atlanta local
    •atlanta local secular only (for local skeptic/atheist events)
    •homeschool (to share stuff with hs friends all over the world/country)
    •homeschool local (to share stuff wtih just local hs friends)

    Helpful tip:
    If you follow someone, they show up in your main 'stream' wether or not they follow you back.
    If someone follows you and you don't follow them back, they show up in 'incoming'.

    I'm wary of them after the accidental discloser of address books on the prevous version... Waiting to see how it goes.

    Also this "circles is revolutionary" thing... I have my Facebook people grouped... No one sees a lllll my posts, just the people who I want to see my posts. It is underused for sure, but it is there.

        I still haven't received an invite from G+ yet. I can't decide if it will replace facebook though.

        Also, you're in atlanta? Sweet! Have you checked out this group yet? We have a primal meetup in decatur this weekend! Not sure if RSVPs are still open though.

          At first I thought "eh, it's like facebook but with no people" then I shifted my thinking -

          1)because it's not about friend-ing, you can 'follow' people just because they're interesting or funny or because they happen to be a foodie or a photog or a homeschooler or whatever.

          2)circles are revolutionary - but not in the way you think if you think it's like facebook groups. i too had facebook 'friends' in groups...'secular', friends, family, birth junkies, science folks etc. But google+ is different because 1)they don't have to be friends and 2) "circles" gives you a way to read content you want without having to read everyone's posts. I only read 20-40 (designated by my circles "read one" and "read 2") but post to many many more.

          3)this could absolutely take the place of twitter, facebook and really, of gmail even. from google+, i can "message" my husband by designating him as the only recipient of a post and disabling sharing. voila! private messaging.

          Aly, I don't know that anyone is getting invites from google. I'm happy to invite you though. Feel free to send me your email: cillakat (at) gmail (dot) com

              I am. I suppose I might consider following some primal people.

                  You are SO far ahead of me... I signed up... made one stupid post and haven't been back to set it up at all :/ Can I just steal your circles? That would be so easy ;-)

                      Sounds like a good way to manage one's several net personas, with one problem - the lock in to google. There needs to be a way to centrally manage one's net personas wherever they are instantiated, rather than having to put it all into one set of hands. After all, google, facebook etc are just looking to profile you and sell access to you

                            I'm on G+ and pretty active. Love the thought of having a primal circle!

                              The nice thing about G+ is that you don't have to know (or trust) people you follow or who follow you. Just set up your circles and share accordingly and you have total control over what folks see.

                              I only share potentially private info (trips, when husband is gone etc) with people who are truly *known* to me.
