A couple articles on Google+

Sitemeter reported that my request Monday for feedback on Google+ drew lots of hits. 

Many of our readers may enjoy this article: Google goes social with Facebook rival (Update). The article starts with:

"Online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it," Google's senior vice president for engineering Vic Gundotra said in a blog post about the long-awaited social networking initiative from the Internet giant.

Unveiling Google+, Gundotra stressed the ability it gives users to separate online friends and family into different "Circles," or networks, and to share information only with members of a particular circle.

"We'd like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software," he said. "We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships and your interests."

In another article, How Does Google's New Social Network Measure Up? compares Google+ to Facebook and Skype in a variety of areas.
