Now before you cry about how much you've invested in Facebook, relax, you've been here before. Anyone remember Picrave, Friendster, or Myspace? Despite the fact that I just dated myself, I've grown used to breakups. I stay in bed for a day or few. I stop eating, and I whine on livejournal like a little goth girl no one thinks is sexy in fishnets. Yes, I've been around the social networking block a few times. And by now, I suspect so have you. So get out of bed and out of those gray heather sweat pants, and get out there. Google+ is your new bff.
One feature that seems destine for greatness is the 'Circles' feature. You assign friends to a certain group when you add them, and you upload pics to a certain circle, and only they see it. So your colleagues at work won't see what you were doing at the club Saturday night. If you're paranoid, I suggest just not adding your coworkers in the first place. Also your potty mouth posts won't be seen by your daddy (whom you probably have issues with anyway.)
If you're sad that Google hasn't asked you to be their friend yet, relax. They haven't asked me yet either. Even though I've been a loyal beta tester for many of their services in the past, and am a member of their Android Army. So, just read this article, and wait. I'll have some invites soon enough, if you're cool enough to be part of my 'Epic Friends' circle. I'll write up a complete review when the big G decides I'm cool enough for their circles.
