The Mother of All Google+ Resource Lists - TNW Apps
Much has been said about how Twitter and Facebook should be worried about Google’s behemoth social network which gained 10 million followers in 16 day, as compared to Twitter’s 780 days, and Facebook’s even longer 852 days.

A Guide to Google+ Privacy and Information Control Can you elaborate? I'm not sure if I understand what you mean. I think What I mean is that I have a hard time seeing how this is going to be any better or any worse in the long run, than any other social network that came before.

I feel that what's going to happen is the same old thing that happens. Ah. I got on facebook freshman year of college, I *think* it was fairly new back then, and there were no ads, or marketing, etc. I'm hoping that G+ avoids the marketing/corporate pages and games, and just sticks with google ads. On the other hand, Google wants money, and people expect social networks to have games and bands and businesses, so I don't expect much. 'you're in, you're not you can see, you can't'... sense?. You are in, you can/'t see, you are not, you cannot but public.
