    I'm pretty sure they closed that loophole earlier today.

    I know I'll be ditching Facebook for this as soon as my closest friends and I can get an account.

    The 'Huddle' alone is worth the switch, looks like you can easily have a conversation with a whole group of friends.
    Something iOS and Android should have incorporated in to their texting apps from the start.

    I'm very much looking forward to this, as it seems more of a professional way to keep tabs on people without the bullcrap that is Facebook.

    I expect a good mobile format and mobile app, the phone hangout chat seemed nice in the video if it wasn't just a mock-up.

    facebook for android has a LOT of room for improvement

    google+ might have a good chance there for 'hangouts on the go' in which facebook lacks.

    Working on setting mine up now. The mobile app seems to have most of the share and post type functions, but none of the setup functions. I could add people, but couldn't even begin to set up my privacy settings and profile. Have to use a desktop for that. The mobile version also seems set up to incorporate geolocation as I had a "nearby" stream option. Going to have to turn that shizz off.

    Do you get a limited number of invites, or can you just go crazy with it? Is that circles loophole still working?

    I just sent one too, using the weird workaround. Hopefully one of them will get through.

    It is kind of annoying that you can't see whether/how many invites are available to send out. I just tried to send a couple out but got a "we're over capacity" message. :(

    I really, REALLY like the circles. I feel like I haven't scratched the surface of it but I REALLY dig the circles. Now if they can add "fan pages" or similar for businesses, it'll have everything I use on facebook plus more.

    Wouldn't that go under "following"? Or just create a new circle for that sort of thing, I made one just for the wife. (for sweet words and naughty pictures, lolz)
