Given how Google is saying they don't want brands here yet, don't be surprised if our account gets deep-sixed. Nonethless, we're here for now and we want to kick the tires.

What does it mean when Mark Zuckerberg has 110,000 followers on Google+ (although he hasn't posted anything) and Larry and Sergey have half that amount of followers? http://www.findpeopleonplus.com/Followers-1%2C000%2B

The concept of a "live" update hasn't been commented on much yet, but is very powerful and nothing that any of the other services has -- when you create a hangout, an update is also created. When the hangout is closed, the update goes away -- implying some type of synchronous connection. I assume this will be supported by their API, leaving open the possibility for lots of different live services reflected in your stream. Very, very impressive.

A few Google+ tips:
- You can click on profile pictures to rotate through them. Nice find by +MG Siegler on that one.
- In the stream, you can click 'j' to navigate down to the next item or 'k' to navigate up. I think it's the same keys that Gmail uses, which is probably in turn because +Paul Buchheit uses vi and created Gmail. :)
- If you're sharing a post with a small circle of people, you can prevent resharing. Click the arrow at the top-right of the post and choose "Disable reshare."
- If you're looking for more fun things in your stream, the "Incoming" stream is stuff from people who are sharing with you, but who you haven't added to a circle.
- One great one from +Frederic Lardinois is that "there is some basic text formatting, too: (*)bold(*), (_)italics(_) and (-)strike-through(-) are the ones I've noticed so far."

What are your favorite Google+ tips?

got my vanity URL gplus.to/cinjo -- after several tries until I realized they only needed my user ID -- not the full URL. Glad Google+ is more intuitive.

Impressed w the UI of Google+ so far. I'm typically skeptical of new releases but this is very easy to use and I like the integration w my Gmail.
