Right now there are no invites, I'll see when they give them back. You don't really need one anyway, you just have to go to plus.google.com during a time when they're open.

Edit: lol they just opened it back up again. sent to your gmail addy

Well if they just opened the floodgates all at once, with beta softtware, the servers may not handle it. it would be liike a DoS attack. And how does that make them look when suddenly nobody can use it?


Invite me please, yes please, invite me!!! Please!!! :)

lol Need email addy, PM if you like. There aren't any invites available at the moment, but I'm compiling a little circle of people to send them to.

The thing about Circles is that it's one way. Like if I create a LightWave circle and add you to it, nothing happens on your end. It's only a way of organizing your own people.

Any wavers out there could add me to their LightWave circle :) just search for my name Petter Sundnes and look for the fishy. I'd like to build up a LW circle anyways.

Only time will tell how this google+ thing will fare, but so far I like it more than facebook for several reason. Downside is of course lack of people there.

What's this about a lack of people? I've got about 70 people in my circles, most of which are 3D artists.

Mitja: Click the Circles icon on top search for people or just add their email addresses. The Find and Invite link lists people you know from your GMail or other contacts and will also suggest people to you. Drag people from the main group into the circles down at the bottom. When you're done adding people click the Home icon at the top to see the stream of what people are saying.

I added you, I hope... following master Phil's instructions. :D
But let me uderstand: if I add you to my circles, I'm not automatically in yours?

Right, the circles are just to organize people for yourself. So if you share a crazy drunken party photo you can choose to only have it go to your "friends" circle and your boss or family never see it.

Wow! I have too friends now! It's hard to find people, you guys have such strange nicknames on this forum... ;D

Philbert
07-11-2011, 03:28 AM
Most of the people I've added are people I already knew from Twitter. Some are people that I saw in other peoples circles or comments and I said "hey I know that person!"

I sent you one...can't really see what the fuss is about at the moment, I'll wait to see what happens when it goes public before passing judgement

realgray
07-11-2011, 10:30 AM
The fuss for me right now is all about the "hangout" feature. 10 way video chat with the ability to watch youtube videos. It's going to be a great (free) way to collaborate with other artists no matter where they are. If someone gets artistically lost just pull up a youtube example and discuss.

realgray
07-11-2011, 10:32 AM
Also if you want to group text with twitter you have to use a hashtag and everything is public. G+ group texting (huddle?) is private as far as I can tell.

realgray
07-11-2011, 10:37 AM
Oh and I love how I can check your privacy settings by using the "view your site as a member of a particular circle" button in the top right hand corner of your profile page.

True, not many people around, but hey, it's not yet officially open to public. They're still on field trial now. Add me on your Lightwave/3d circles :) Search for Kenji Hayakawa.

Circles seem great for organising individual communications going out, not so good for bringing people together with a common interest like Facebook Groups.

I think groups, like the Facebook groups, are planned for later from what I've read.

I may be wrong but that sounds like the Huddle feature.

souzou

I may be wrong but that sounds like the Huddle feature.

I guess huddle is similar but it's more of a group chat than a group stream. And again it is being driven by the original poster including people in their huddle (like a circle) instead of the other way around - people opting into a group. I see huddle as more like Facebook messages.

Looks cool so far, but since I don't know the interface I'll have to mess around and figure out what is what.
I liked the drag and drop thing for circles.

Philbert

I'm upset with Google+ at the moment. it turns out that if you have a Google Apps account you're not allowed to use the G+ Android app. Even worse Google Apps is getting an update on July 24th (or you can do it now), after the update you can no longer log in to Google+. I found out from someone who did it.

alexos
07-21-2011, 02:27 AM
So I'm adding a whole lot of lightwavers, but it feels kind of strange not having to ask for permission or introduce oneself or anything. I'm assuming a small notification will pop up (it does here) and people will wonder who the hell that is (I often do) and the whole thing seems pretty... sterile for now. But oh well, we'll see...
