One thing Facebook gets right: separating friend request notifications from other notifications. Esp. important for Google+ and Twitter, where the graph is directed.

I'll admit, the worst part about Google+ is the delay before the red notifications box is populated. I find it difficult to believe that this is a technical limitation; are they hiding it for a second hoping it won't distract me from whatever initially led me to the site?

Yeah, +Noah Tye, I think it is actually likely... it is quite a bright and distinctive notification, and their UX guys probably did studies on how google searches are less efficient when you have a notification just waiting for you to read it. Also, G+ has been dogfood for quite a while so I would be surprised if they hadn't noticed the "distraction" problem internally.

Still can't tell how this is supposed to be less bad than Facebook.

+Alison Shin, I think you have to use the android app to share your favorite cereal or something. I can't find it anywhere on the feed page.

After I click the circle to add someone to, the menu stays there and disappears when I hover away. Feels like no closure.

Same happening to me. And of course, I can't upload photo proof to the thread.

Willie Yao originally shared:
 
Lameness factor = people in your circle - people with you in their circle

The single most interesting data that Google+ will have.

Agree. However, Amos and I noticed that the "have xyz in circles" on the profile and "people who've added you" in circles tab up top have significantly different numbers.

You know, I would really like this if it let me +1 other peoples' +1's.

Its a +1 inside of a +1!!! That's too many levels.

I'm not convinced that explicitly declaring my relationships (as in Circles) is the correct approach.

error: when I said group, I meant list.

Google+ suggests that I add "Noah Tye" to my circles.

I can't click on people's names to learn more about them before adding them to circles.
