We all are....join the club :)

Contemplating an FB migration 
 
It's the nooks and crannies of Plus that are the most impressive.
 
Shocking ability to change the finest minutiae of what I share and don't share. Integrating other Google services into this (Calendar, Places) is a must.
 
+Zach Weiner and I are getting drinks in SB tonight. Will eat some pig on bread together.
 
One of my only complaints is the way it handles reshares. I don't like seeing the same thing reshared by several people in the same stream.
 
+Brenton Simpson you can add only a single person to your post and it will share only to their stream and yours, it allows a more personal conversation :)
 
it's a mindfuck alright. this whole +1 thing makes no sense to me, I like everything else about it except google gives way too much credit to us, most people aren't going to use it correctly and that will turn off the only people who really love the idea #boyhood esfault
 
Is there a way to share something with a circle but exclude certain people from it? Simple on FB, but I don't see a way to do it here :/
 
good idea: boolean circles sound cool. especially with location.
 
+Brenton Simpson that's a fantastic idea, and something I wish I'd had on FB. G+ has so many features they could build on this service (especially considering all of their other services), so I'm really excited where this'll go. Facebook was built from the ground up. G+ feels like all Goog services being patched together. 
 
Location (IP, GPS, WiFi) would be amazing. I often want to share things with specific locales but people move/travel around all the time so it's impossible to keep those sort of groupings updated. 
 
number one request ive seen has been ability to exclude circles- I wouldn't have been able to predict excluding people from your shared items woul be such a big deal either. no doubt the feedback will cause this change. keep in mind that this is a limited trial version. people want something new, the universe prefers novelty. 
 
asymmetrical/symmetrical, boolean, circle exclusion; what other ideas do people have?
 
google prides itself on nominalistic simplicity yet G+ seems specifically gear toward those rabid information sharers who are willing to do the groundwork, associate circles and then use the service to actually share. While easier than adding each email address to a list of BCCs automatically, it's not really a big answer to a hugely requested feature. google's play is hoping average people will begin to share things more often using G+, truth of the matter is that the majority of common Internet users will not know about + and continue to Fwd along chain email, watercooler conversations and conspiracy theories. truth is that there's not much incentive for personal pix on + when everything else is On the Facebook. I'm content with + being somewhat elitist, I just hope it's not SO eliteist that it never gets used
 
The photos from my circles tab is one of my favorite things about + lots of variety and it is easy to see which have already been commented on. The question remains if people will switch, and most sites won't make it easy to migrate data from one place to another.
 
I think we'll definitely see a huge shift in demographics between the two sites. + is pivotal for Google (in my opinion). I hope they realize it and put a lot of development into it. Done right, it could become the new flickr, facebook, twitter, reddit, foursquare, linkedIn. Oddly enough, I don't find that idea absurd. 
 
if my G+ and FB streams were to cross, would it cause total Protonic reversal? Devastating.
 
Crossing the Streams

"There's something very important I forgot to tell you. Don't cross the streams… It would be bad… Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light."
—Egon Spengler/Harold Ramis on crossing social networking streams
 
It's definitely a very new service, and i suspect that some negative circles, and some mixing/bool of circles will come eventually
