Enjoy, iPhone-users!
iPhone, meet Google+

Share just the right stuff, with just the right circles :-)

This app should be rolling out over the next few hours. Try getting it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google/id447119634?ls=1&mt=8

For all you Hulu addicts who would like to sample HuluPlus.

Tons of great features, this is my favorite Chrome Extension for Google+. Tons of great features that make sharing, replying, etc. easier.

Two simple changes: 1) locks the black top bar (does not affect other Google sites) and 2) adds a grey background to parts of the site. Personally I find this improves readability as it is less glaringly white.

Auto-collapses all comments for posts in your stream. Useful if you follow people whose posts end up getting a LOT of comments. Makes it far easier to quickly scroll through your stream to see the actual posts (without having to scroll past so many comments).

I appreciated the collection of "News Organizations" that are joining Google+.

Remember that G+ is different than Facebook! It's okay to add people that you do not personally know, but simply provide interesting content. That is the beauty of assigning Circles...
G+ Tip: For those +Goobs (G+ noobs) who are just joining us - here is a list of PreFab Circles that you can use to start generating Circles that you might be interested in following. A PreFab Circle is a G+ user generated Circle that can be shared publicly. The members of these PreFabricated/PrePopulated Circles are connected by some common link (ie: working for the same company, same sports team, same interests etc.) I hope that we will be able to keep adding to this list.

This is confirmed as still working. A very easy way to import (almost) all your contacts from Facebook into Google+. Takes about 2 minutes and the link even includes pictures for the technologically challenged!

FAST and EASY way to move your photos from Facebook to Picasa (the host for Google+ photos). Allows you to do individual photos or entire albums with easy clicks. Great way to move photos here, or even just to back them up off of Facebook.

Note: transferring them does NOT automatically share them on Google+! Even after transferring, you still have to share them manually with your circles for them to be visible. So feel free to back everything up and share selectively.
