I've only spent a few days with Google+, but as with Google Wave, and the reams of hype surrounding it, yet so far ... I'm not blown away. Am I missing something? So, it's like a search engine meets half of a social network; like if Facebook also had a search engine and I could "like" stuff as I searched.
Don't get me wrong, there are things I like about it over Facebook; the circles, and the fact that it integrates in with search (a no-brainer), and "Sparks" is a cool feature, but the rest is a little ho-hum.
So, if you're looking for an invite, drop me a contact
, I have 'em.
