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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
