"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Some questions and observations about Google+, so far...

Ex post facto editing of posts. I give that a +100.

The "Have Yvette in circles" count on my Google profile is off by 50+/- people. Why? Is this a user-setting issue (on the part of those invisible 50+/- people)?

Shared posts: I can link back to original images and video but not to original text postings. I want hyperlinks to all original posted utterances.

I want comments to be linkable, too. (I'm Twitter-spoiled.)

Folks are using http://gplus.to/ to create logical Google+ profile URLs. (Google is already aware that "the current URL is heinous"...I believe this will be fixed at some point.) (I would share a link to that comment from Google...alas, not possible.)

I wish we had a direct-message feature. Messages sent only to me appear as "Limited," which means something different to me than "Private".

Where is my keyword search bar for text in my Google+ stream? Can we really not search our streams (e.g., FriendFeed)?

My +1 button for SERPs is visible on my iPad and DroidX but not on SERPs via my computer. Why is this? +Dean Bairaktaris: What am I missing?

What kind of SEO results are Google+ posts getting, so far? +Chris Brogan is reporting positive things...anyone else?

+Miguel Lopez: How are you posting to Google+ from Digg? What other services already allow for cross-posting? Does anyone know? Is there a list?

NB: I have already unfollowed people for triplicate and quintuplicate postings all over my digital life. This does not bode well. We heard you twice the first time, yo.

I'm really enjoying Google+, largely because data and response management is not an issue for me (yet) since MostPeople aren't here (yet). Does that make me antisocial? (rhetorical question)

What's going to be the driving factor for migration to Google+ from Facebook for MostPeople? If you're using FB for business (I don't), are you worried about having a segmented user base? This is just one more service to "manage," after all. Is anyone worried? I'm not...I think it will be 3 years before anyone gets Grandma on Google+. I know 300 people who would look at Google+ today and say, "It doesn't look like Facebook" and dismiss it. What say you?

Google+ (and Reader) and Facebook execute infinite scrolling beautifully. Why can't Twitter?

What's our character limit on Google+ posts?

What other bugs or quirks have I missed?

Google+ observation #57. Each new comment results in a "bump". It's sort of old-skool forum justice, but I like it.

Google observation #58. Knowing where your "Mute this post" button is is helpful.

Well, this is interesting. At first, I wondered if this is what happens when people opt out of Google+ after joining. OR...was I unfollowed by 3 people who followed me last week?

Clicking through to their profiles, it appears as if they are still Plus users and still have me in their circles.

And if they weren't or didn't, is this Google's way of telling me that I could stalk them by e-mail, if I wanted to? If so, I would prefer not to.

Have you seen this before? What does it mean?

If you haven't already seen how the socnet accounts you've connected to your Google profile are already impacting the search results of your CONNECTIONS on Facebook and Twitter, you might be interested in reading +Chris Brogan's thoughts on the larger picture. I think it will be a while before Plus significantly impacts Facebook for non-tech-sector folks. But the name of the game is Search...organic and social are both already at play in a whole new way, as far as I can tell.

I invite anyone new to Google+ to have a look at the About section of +Julio Fernandez's Google profile: https://plus.google.com/u/0/106914186897370535526/about. The possibilities are so fun.

Story
Introduction

I'm a gardener; greyhound whisperer; social-mediaphile; neologist; writer; extrovert.  I'm dying for my own flock/colony/herd of chickens, bees, and goats. I am nerdier than I look.

I'm also a professional digital and social media strategist/director/consultant. I live and work in Miami, FL. 

I spend a lot of time poking around on social networks, for work and play. Got a question?  Need some help?  Please say hello.
