Went last week and thought it was really lovely, bar a few minor gripes about service & seasoning which are easily ironed out: http://bit.ly/TPFP_G

I have managed cleverly to delete everyone I just added. Deepest joy.

Things I don't like on here, first in a series:

I don't know how to say hello to people I know without joining onto an existing post. And if they don't have an existing post, I'd have to start a thread going 'Hi old pal' which is lame.

I don't like the feeling that the popular boys and gals are all having sneaky, wildly exciting Circle whispering sessions that I'm not invited to.

I'm constantly confused as to where my last convo is unless I basically live here. And I've a bad enough online habit as it is.

I don't know who can read what, despite Lucy Pepper's helpful and decorative cartoons.

There seems to be far less opportunity for random interaction, discovery of new people (most of the people in my Circles I either know IRL or from twitter) and surprising 'friendships'.

Basically, after giving it a red hot go, I still MUCH prefer Twitter.

~does that thing of coming on Google+ to talk about Google+~
~goes back to Twitter~
~prob comes back in about ten mins or so~

I've been driven to this thing I don't understand at all, because I am avoiding doing something that sends me to sleep. I'm not even sure how I ended up on this page - I meant to check my gmail, but clicked Google + instead & found this. Fabulously distracting so there's absolutely no chance I'll create a marketing budget today, unless anyone on here wants to make one up for me.

We are all, apparently, 'boosting our whuffies'. Fave new word after 'sockpuppetry'.

I've realised that the only reason I'm here is that it's invite-only. You can take the girl out of Glasgow....

I absolutely love the game gals in this blog about stylish seniors. Check out Beatrix for how it should be done.

Lucy Pepper - who says she's making a film about being in here for which I'm gagging - on being a Google+ early adopter.
