What is Google+

Overview

Google+ is a new social networking site that Google released in June 2011.  It includes a lot of Google services within the site. I anticipate Google has a lot more in store for Google+. It offers the flexibility and customization that Facebook is missing.

You can join Google+ at https://plus.google.com. However, at this time, you may need a need an invite to get started. If so, send me and email and I will send you and invitation.

UPDATE: You no longer need an invitation to sign up…Just head over and  join Google+ at https://plus.google.com.
