Anyone who isn't on it already that wants to be can sign up via this link. (It's good for 150 invites)

A MacCentral/AppleCentral circle is sounding like a good idea to me. wink

Happy Birthday!

I signed up and put you in a circle (I think). I even left a comment. My first venture into the realm of social networking. Does this mean I am suddenly hip at 64?

Yep, I've been circled. wink

It really is a great service …and since you are familiar with forum posts/replies you should pick it up extremely easily. Just think of it as a posting ground where you have control over who sees what.

Funny, been wanting to try +, never could get an invite and 5 minutes after writing it off found a link to an invite and signed up.

Have not much of a clue what to do next...

I'll see if I can find you guys. Anyone looking for me - Chris Nielsen. Don't know if there is a way to poast a link to me, to my ? circle, my ...?

Yep, all you have to do is click on your name (right below the G+ logo). It'll take you to your profile page. Just copy that url.

Here's mine. https://plus.google.com/108387628729962324242/posts

Once it gets out of beta mode I'm sure they'll make the urls a little better.

Some tips...
1. If you want to mention someone simply put a + or a @ in front of their name. You'll see a dropdown list as soon as you start typing. They will be notified that they are being called out. (red box in upper right of window)
2. putting special characters around your text changes it's properties. -strikethru- _italic_ *bold*
3. You can send private messages by typing one specific recipient's name in the sharing field and deleting everything else.
4. You can stop people from sharing your post with others by going to the post's dropdown and choose "disable reshare" ..you can also disable comments the same way.
5. Hangouts let up to 10 people video chat at the same time. (I've haven't done one yet, but it seems pretty cool.)
