New Google+ UI is really wonderful. So much attention to little details, design and UX that make a site feel special and enjoyable. Yet I still feel like it is missing the content and social interactions that make me want to spend time here. The product is very solid -- maybe just needs a "Lazy Sunday" moment?

Josh if you are an active G+ user and want to be in our trusted tester group email me off thread. Always use a good set of eyes from active trusted users!

Why do my Twitter posts show up in Google Buzz, but not in the "Posts" tab on my Google+ profile?

Carol's off the team. Someone put a punch in her "cool card". Looks like you might have to turn that in pretty soon.

What happens if someone adds me to a Circle, but I have not added them? Do they see my updates? Do I need to reciprocate or confirm the relationship?

So after reading this, I did add a circle for "scumbags" but then I got rid of it. Don't want to be reminded of it every time I'm on my circles page.

Wondering if I should invest more personal time in Google+... It has great features (and getting better), but it is not part of my daily use pattern. What is the tipping point for a Social Network to actually become a must-use destination? If it was just a matter of product features, then G+ would already be there... What do you think?

+Sean Gilligan  I think LinkedIn has been pretty successful at making their site more engaging over the last few years. They do a great job of presenting relevant news and information that is tailored to my interests and industry. They added exclusive content and article series from industry experts and thought-leaders a few months ago. There is also a lot of user interaction, status updates, private messages, professional groups, etc. I guess there just seems to be a lot of activity there. And a lot of sites are seeing traffic from LinkedIn surpassing traffic from Twitter and other social sites.

The new toolbar in Google Plus (and Gmail) is sleek and nifty. It allows me to "circle" friends very quickly as they add me

Creating Circles in Google+ is a lot of work. It is also a lot to think about every time I want to share or post something. This should be easier...
