THOUGHT: My latest view on Google+ is that they need to move quickly to have tablet apps specifically Flipboard, Editions and Zite. I've also observed that since Facebook has changed its feed, the audience is less interested in new-focused posts, and seem to be enjoying funny pictures.

A good story. A goalie story.
Hope Solo, ostracized by her team at the 2007 World Cup for being openly critical of the coach and a fellow goalkeeper, seems fully back in the fold.

I'm going to try a new hypothesis about Google+. Here it goes. I think the most challenged channel by it other than Facebook and Linked in is Quora.

I feel like the audience here, and the connections are much more of the "thinking" and interacting type. Easy to post inquiries to targeted circles and the commenting, at least early stage is perhaps more thougthful. Anyone else agree?

All the super nerdy nerds like me migrated here first and I love it. I agree with your hypothesis.

I don't think it's like Google Buzz at all..think it could be a game-changer. If people can get over the conceptual hurdle of circles..

One immediate reaction to Google+ is that it doesn't feel very private. Feels like circles could easily be more public than one might want them to be. Other impressions?

But of course the latter caveat is true of any electronic form of communication...

In fact, I've seen some posts pop up where people are speculating that G+ could be a single platform for all forms of msg'ing: mail, sms, voice, videochat, IM...
