This week, Google released its long-awaited and first, really serious entry into the social networking world.
That’s Google+ or Google Plus if you’re nasty.
I’ve been playing around with the new service, and I really like it. I think Google actually did a great job here.
A major thing it has going for it is the UI and design. It’s really well done. Using Circles, Google’s way to sort and organize friends, makes Goodle+ very intuitive and even, dare I say, fun to use. However, those Circles really looked like a big rotary dial to me, so I whipped up the above image.
This is unemployment day one, and I love it.
