I think I am probably done with Google+

1. It doesn't really have any features I crave (Wave did... its failure still hurts).

2. My family and friends are not on it, which makes whole circles concept irrelevant for me.

3. I can't think up of doing anything with it that I can't do with Twitter.

4. Checking it feels like a chore that eats my attention, but doesn't offer proportional entertainment reward.

I have nothing against it and it is very decent social network (even now in initial implementation). But for me it's not replacing Twitter and not offering anything worthy to use it in parallel.

"We need large social network of our own or we are screwed."
I doubt that last line. A lot of good points to end on a sour point. Google wouldn't have been effected by lack of a social network. Google's dominating with Android right now. You don't see apple with a social network do you? Personally, twitter is spam land. I have no idea why people love twitter so much. None of my friends use it, and the ones who do either rarely post, post crap I don't care about, use it wrong, or post once a year.

Wave -- has nothing to do with social networking. It was collaboration services. More like a radical twist on socialcast.com by vmware.

They canned wave because it had a high learning curve, and was very widely misunderstood and hyped as something it wasn't, a social network.

it's not really for meant for this. data is pulled from the memory and it's not exactly information that should be public. what Codex Generator is meant for is filling up Codex :) which is supposed to be such public site

Hm, +Felicia Day ... "Find and invite" algorithms must be getting desperate to getting me circling some of those hundreds of suggestions. Ok, I concede on this one.

Accidental discovery - if you click large avatar in someone's profile it cycles through older avatars (Google now keeps avatars in special Picasa album or something like that). Now go compare people before and after Google+ :)

You can also set multiple profile pictures. Edit your profile and click Change Picture (not sure how it is named in English/Russian). There you get a directory Profile Pictures on the left hand, kind of a special album.

My alternative pictures are all newer than the first visible.

Some stuff on customizing WP Screen Option with comment by +Peter Westwood : the screen options code is a little fragile and will likely get a rework in the future which may not be 100% backwards compatible so this route may not work forever. In the long run I suspect we need a proper api to allow plugins/core to add things in the right place to get rid of all the hackery we have now.

I wonder if my blog will ever get off shared hosting and to such shiny toys... :)

So I had same person suggested as + user and as email contact. + doesn't seem to be able to merge, so I went to contacts and merged. Result - profile version disappeared from +, email version stayed. Wait, why?..
