You Are Invited to Join Google Plus
Check out the demo. See if you want to hangout. Make sure that Skype is not in use. I had issues with my first hangout because Skype had control of my mic and speakers, though oddly enough not my webcam. Pants are optional.
Still need work, but I find blog posts and articles that I wouldn't otherwise come across on the topics that I am interested in. Especially Android and recipes. Bonus, I don't have to clutter up my already overloaded Google Reader with more blogs.
Are the new Group.Me or Beluga -- if you have the app (also available for i-devices).
Texting is great, but not when you’re trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle turns all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page all at once. Your thumbs will thank you.
And the best part of G+ is Circles. I'm still sorting mine out but it's really nice to post to only certain people instead of the whole wide web.
