The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Google+ - Will it spark interest or run around in circles?

    I hope it's not in bad form to ask for an invite if you're a member that posts a little less and lurks a little bit more?

    If it is, go ahead and disregard me, but if not - my email is <blam>.

    I would love an invite to play around with some of these features - as somebody in this thread mentioned before, this could actually help me quite a bit for organizing things professionally as well.

    Is there an app for the ipod touch? I know there is an iphone one, but I can't find it on the app store with my touch.

    Okay, probably wrong thread but while people are abandonning ship from facebook, is anyone's fucking facebook chat box loading as the top of the page? Like what happens is the entire right justified chat box all of a sudden pops up onto the top of the page, and the actual facebook is below it. I mean, really, did they not only have to fuck the design but also royally fuck how it is loaded as well?

    I use google chrome on Windows 7 64bit if it makes any difference.

    I don't suppose anyone has an invite they could give to a long time lurker do they?

    I'm keen to explore a brave new world post Facebook.

    Can someone send me an invite please? Curious to see if I hate it as much as Facebook or not.

    Google+ apparently now comes in Angry Bird flavour, but I'll be damned if I can find where or how.

    edit: never mind, the UK doesn't get access to games yet. Because we're bitches, or something.

    I can see it. It's pretty polished. I like how the permissions system tells you exactly what information the game will be getting from you, whereas fuck knows what the app might get from you in Facebook.

    Otherwise it's the same old shitty horribly addictive puzzle games from Facebook except they don't clutter up your stream unless you explicitly let them. Stays in line with the other aspects of G+ so far and keeps in its own neat little tab.

If you have to register your [email protected] email address with XYZ company you can do it as [email protected] so that you can set up a filter and spot/autodiscard any unwanted spam that has come from XYZ or from XYZ selling your contact info without affecting the rest of your incoming email.

    Because gmail ignores anything after a + you can sign up to sites with different emails e.g. I will sign up to the PA forums with [email protected] and to the SA forums with [email protected] Both will forward to the same email: [email protected], but in the to field you will see "To: [email protected]", for example.

    Now lets say you suddenly start receiving tons of penis enlargement spam, and in the to field you see "To: [email protected]" you will now know that those ratfuckers gave your email to a spam company.

    Turned up for me this morning. So glad it's an entirely separate tab and I won't have my steam filled up with crap about games people are playing a la Facebook.

    That's a pretty damned good idea.

    Huh. Google Voice has just enabled itself on my account, or at least, it said it was an option and asked me if I wanted to enable it and I said yes. So, an alternative form of Skype Out?

    Looks like some G+ is seeping into facebook

    https://www.facebook.com/about/sharing/
    https://www.facebook.com/about/control/

    changing visibility (even changed 'Everyone' to 'Public') per post
    approving wall posts/photo tags before they appear
    change privacy settings for posts after they were posted

    Eventually Facebook will gain all of Google+'s features, leaving Google+ to be the next Google Buzz.

    Randomly adding people. There's no global circles that I've seen.

    Is there a PA circle forming? My Google+ is rather barren (mostly because a good portion of my FB friends are leery of it currently until it goes public), wouldn't mind a circle of forumers.

  • DextaDexta Registered User, __BANNED USERS
    So less and less people are using google+ as often as they used to.

    Will Google+ just end up like Google Buzz?

    No one is posting for me anymore on google+. I'm not posting anything either in fairness.

    I post on G+ a fair amount, as do some of my friends/people with similar interests/other.

  • an_altan_alt Registered User regular
    I don't create a lot of original posts on G+, but I've had some good discussions with a few forumers and friends I actually like. I still think the best thing about G+ is its relative obscurity. It's great not to have to deal with all my coworkers wanting to be Facebook friends.

    I've also managed to do some quite useful networking on G+ in a way which would have never happened on Facebook.

  • DarmakDarmak RAGE vympyvvhyc vyctyvyRegistered User regular
    I don't ever have anything worth saying so I hardly ever post on G+, but to be fair I don't post on Facebook much either. I will comment on other people's posts occasionally though.

    I think social networking just isn't for me, really. I only have a few close friends and I talk to them nearly daily via other means, and I've found I honestly don't give a fuck what is going on in anyone else's life or about their opinions or thoughts or whatever.
