I like Google+, I seem to use it mainly for shouting at Google

The Android app of Google+ has decided to open URLs in an internal browser instead of the one of my choosing :(

I just tired Google Inbox. Gave up after 5 minutes.
The killer feature in regular G+ is labels. Thats what got me hooked.
Labels in Inbox are hard to find and hard to use.
So Google Inbox is not for me.

Funny, I read in the morning paper that Google Plus was changing, I went to find more information but I didn't think to actually look at Google+

Duh

Does that say more about me or Google+?

yeah it's a ghost town. And all the while they are messing around with +, they haven't been working on google hangouts, which is one of the best things they have built since gmail

For all Goggle & Apple are supposed to consider "usability" I sometimes find it hard to believe they ever see real users like me. Doing the simplest thing is sometimes just impossible, take deleting a photo album, or just getting a list of photo albums, or "unshareing" a photo album.

"Google Calendar invitations cannot be forwarded via email" - what I want, what I really want, is a button that says "Would you like to add this event to a different Google calendar you also happen to own?" (just hope there is a Google Product Manager out there picks up this message in a bottle)

Of course the main reason for using Google+ is to pass message to the Google Hive Mind AI in the hope it will fix something

F*** you Google+! Controlling who I shared with was the main reason I came to you and you've f*ed it up; just 'cos you don't care about privacy doesn't mean I don't. 

Sorry Joe Public but pictures of my kids are family only
