Still Looking For A Google+ Invite I Got You Covered

First, I am officially a member of Google+ and I am completely willing to share the wealth.  If you are looking for an invite leave your Gmail email address in the comments below and i will shoot you one over asap.

After a short time of playing around with Google+ I have realized two things that will change communication forever.

1.) This is by far the best social media network I have ever used.  This means that in the near future as more and more people jump ship from Facebook to Google+, I will be deleting my Facebook accounting. There is no way Facebook can compete with the integration of all the other Google apps I use the same way that Google+ can.

2.)  Android devices are going to exploded in the near future and data usage is going to go through the roof.  With everything you can do on Google+ and its integration of Google voice and video chat I feel sorry for those cell phone patrons who did not elect to get the unlimited data plan when they had the chance.  That or I hope they have access to tons of free wifi near by because group video chat on a phone is going to eat up your 2 gig of data in not time flat.

Below are some more great reviews and helpful hints for using Google+ to its full potential. Enjoy!

5 ways Google+ could steal music fans from Facebook

Google’s social network, Google+, is late. Facebook has a big lead, having ousted MySpace, which in turn deposed Friendster, the site that started us all on this path towards recreating our social fabric as a network of connected personal nodes.

Facebook is an excellent tool for sharing music — usually in the form of Google’s YouTube videos — but even the developer of the top music app on Facebook says it doesn’t do enough, musicwise.

And when we canvassed the top 20 Facebook music apps, we were shocked by what we found.

Apple to decide on Google+ app

This is going to be a big decision from Apple.  If they decide to block the app watch out for people bailing from iPhone to Droid, Google+ is worth the jump.

Google has asked Apple to approve a mobile version of its social networking site + (Plus) for iPhones and iPads.

The news that it had submitted an iOS app was revealed by a Google employee, writing on her personal page.

For + to succeed alongside Facebook and Twitter, it will need to reach as many mobile devices as possible, according to industry watchers.

However, Apple exercises strict control over what can run on its platform and has blocked Google apps in the past.

If the search giant fails to get a “native” app approved, it may find itself restricted to a browser-based web application, as it has been for other Google services on iOS.

“There are two good reasons for getting a native app,” said Torsten Stauch, chief technology officer at AppShed.

“The first is the exposure you get from being on the App Store.

“The other is the push alerts. You really need that to make the user start the app and engage with it,” he said.

Looking for a Google+ invite? Either get comfortable – or get crafty.

OR ASK ME FOR ONE AS I STATED ABOVE I HAVE INVITES TO SEND OUT TO ANYONE WHO WANTS ONE.

Google+ invites – plenty of bloggers and tech writers already have them, and plenty of regular Web users really want them. And so, for a brief period of time on Wednesday night, Googleopened the floodgates, allowing current Google+ members to invite their pals. But according to Google exec Vic Gundotra, invites flew so fast and furious that the invite mechanism was quickly shut down again.

“Insane demand,” Gundotra wrote on his Google+ account. “We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way. Thank you all for your interest!”

Google Apps Users Won’t Be Left Out of Google+ Fun, Says Google’s President of Enterprise 

One of the more numerous complaints since Google+ launched has been its lack of Google Apps support. Google Apps is a platform used mainly by small and some large businesses. With the platform, employees can enjoy many of Google’s services in a secure, easy and affordable way. Unfortunately, things aren’t always rosy for Apps users. All of that will soon turn around, though, as Google’s president of enterprise, Dave Girouard, has confirmed via Google+ that they are indeed working on bringing Plus to Apps users. They wanted to make sure it was done right, says Google’s Christian Oestlian:

Please tell your friends using Google Apps that we’re working to make Google+ available to them. Sorry for the delay – we need to do it right!

That’s noble. Unfortunately, no timeframe was given as to when we’d be seeing Google+ support for Apps users, but we’re sure it won’t be too long of a wait now. Let’s be patient, folks. [Pocket-Lint]
