Are you considering using Google+ or recently started using it? I have and I have to say that I’m a big confused about it and I’m really not sure of the benefits just yet. Let’s say I’m using it tentatively and will make my conclusions after testing. For me, it’s not as intuitive as I’d like it to be.
I tripped upon an article by Sunil Jain about Google+ that contains some good info on Google+ compared to Facebook and ways to manage your privacy. Have a look and decide for yourself.
