G++ is Live
October 1, 2011
Today we're releasing the first version of our browser plugin for Chrome and Firefox browsers. G++ turns Google Plus into an integrated social platform by incorporating feeds, posting capabilities, comments, likes, retweets, and other features from Facebook and Twitter right in into Google+.
We strongly believe Google Plus is going to be a dominant social platform and part of early adoption can be improved by allowing users to incorporate features from their current and most widely used social platforms. With Facebook and Twitter integration, G++ turns Google Plus into a one stop social platform.
Download and try out G++!
Google Plus posting permissions are Genuis!
July 28, 2011
Last week, AllThingsD, wrote an article stating that more than 2/3 of Google Plus activity is posted privately. We think this is one of the most brilliant aspects of Google Plus.
Think about it.. Twitter is an amazing, world changing platform, but all posts are public. When we want to post things that aren't public we turn to Facebook (it's a closer, more private, circle of friends). Google Plus remedies this situation and integrates both aspects of social sharing into one platform. In addition, it makes public sharing more integrated than Twitter for posts with content to discover, videos, photos, etc. In addition, it adds commenting in-stream (unlike Twitter for public posts).
Facebook's Over Engineering

Facebook really isn't doing any favors for itself by continuing to pump "features" into the site. Google Plus's simplicity is a huge plus (no pun intended) for the platform.
Now if there were only a way to incoporate Facebook and Twitter feeds into the Google Plus stream and allow users to Post to those platforms from Google Plus as well (hmm... have you seen G++!!!
Google Plus hits 20 million users
July 22, 2011
Today, Google Plus has reported it has reached 20 million users. This is pretty amazing for a few reasons. First, it's not open to everyone yet (still remains in "invite" mode). Second, it took Twitter and Facebook over 2 years to reach 10 million users (Google Plus did that in 16 days).
