Facebook Refresh

Have you ever wished you could hit the refresh button on Faceook and start over? You friended one work friend and now you feel obligated to friend them all? You put them in a group, limited their access, but feel bad about it because it is so obvious? Everyone has hesitated to be their authentic self for fear of offended mom or losing a job. Google+, Google’s new social network removes the fear and adds the ability to post updates, images and video to certain people by way of circles. Google+ lets you hit the re-fresh button on your social networks and so much more.

Imagine posting your runs only to people who care about running! Non-runners will do the happy dance! With Circles, you name your own circles and drag and drop your friends into a circle. If you’re a gmail, gchat, picassa, android user, you will love the integration, even at this early stage and it will get even better quickly IMO.

There are a lot of great features, many I haven’t even explored yet, but Google+ had me at circles and no ads or games…yet.

Google+ is open to everyone with a gmail account. If you don’t have one, and want to give + a run, leave me your email address and I’ll send you an invite.
