What a joy...Google+ is certainly better than facebook for me. Way better. I can organize my friends, family etc into circles and share stuff with just who I want.
..and the way it handles photos that you want to share is really great... and when you upload them, it doesn't go to your Picasa account and consume space there.
The way they get displayed when you share them is sumptuous, too.
If you want to follow me on Google+, or just see what I mean, here's my profile...
Follow me follow...If you want me and the other folks here to follow you, drop off your google+ profile in the comments
See you in my circles!
