Come join me on Google+, the new social-network-plus-a-whole-lot-more that Google launched at the beginning of July. If you are a Facebook or Twitter user, you may well find that you like Google+ better in some ways. The user interface is delightful. You can easily share posts and photos with just the people who you want to see them (i.e., your mom need not see that photo of you _________).
Perhaps best of all, Google does not claim to own your data. If you want to delete something, or edit a post, or even delete your entire account, it’s easy to do.
Here is my profile page on Google+ and you will notice that you can see it even if you are not a Google+ subscriber. When you click that link, you will see all of my public posts. I have also posted a number of items to select “circles” and those can only be seen by the intended recipients.
