Well, I have set my Google+ profile up at https://plus.google.com/106844831006865531623/about, (YES, William Shatner, is in my "follow" circle). I have to say it has been fun so far. Apparently Google+ is not really set up yet for businesses, but it is on the way. I came across the following link from REELSEO that goes into this in more detail.

If You’re A Business, Google Plus Doesn’t Want Your Business… Yet


Different from the Facebook "friends" and "likes", Google+ has "circles" and "1+". Below is a slide show I found, with snip of a video adding a bit of humor, that does a good job of explaining the Google+ circle concept. Instead of "groups" in Facebook, Google+ has "huddles", and the second slide show gets into this.

NOTE: The first 4 slides are a plug for Supernova Studios. Looks like a good service, obviously they have taken the time to put together a great presentation, but it is not my intent to try to sell anything here :-).

Here is another good slide show I came across at the Real-Tech Guy that provides a great visual outline of how Google+ thinks. TIP: The first 4 slides are a plug for Supernova Studios.

I personally like the look and the layout of Google+ better than Facebook, where I have a business page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/HomeNet/204047306300032?sk=wall.

It will be interesting to watch as Facebook and Google+ battle it out for the top "social media" dog spot.

I do believe I can hand out some invitations if anyone is interested--no guarantee--the envelope does appear to work, but I have not sent one to anybody yet. Just send me an email that includes your email address to send the invitation to.

Thanks for sharing your perspective. I got a Google+ invite from Google but haven't even cashed it in yet.
