Google+ is indeed Facebook but not Facebook, and that is indeed what we actually wanted. No, I don't have invites, I'll let you know if I do. Fatally goddamn addictive — I set up my account Friday at 3pm and spent the next three hours at work on it. Obviously access is limited so as not to crash the economy all in one go.

Mind you, two days in and it's trying to leverage extra info out of me! I tried accessing it on my phone and it promptly blocked my way with a demand to agree to another "mobile TOS" that tells them my location. Bloody cheek. If I want to tell you where I am I will.

AAAA SHUT UP JUST PLAY THE BLOODY SONG THIS IS FOLK NOT STANDUP SHUT UP AND PLAY SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP So today I was at the Acoustic Roots at Fairkytes, Havering, where [personal profile] arkady's Morris side danced out and Freda debuted on ukulele. I got pics and video which Arkady will upload some time soon.

Well, maybe, but minus several hundred points for Arkady's account spamming my inbox and a couple of thousand more for responding to unsubscribe with 404.

Arkady's G+ posts started appearing in my anarres inbox. I presume if it was doing it to me it was doing it to the rest of her google addressbook - I certainly don't recall having granted permission for that sort of thing, and it's not the sort of thing I would do voluntarily. "Grr," thinks I, "but look, there's an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email." Response - 404.

A one line email exchange with Arkady fixed the problem, but it shouldn't have needed that, and the potential for it to be a massive irritation was huge.

Yep, that was my experience.

So you're saying this is actually worth trying to scare an invite from somewhere? As opposed to say, Google Wave.

There was a workaround that allowed you to create as many invites as you wanted, or something.
I saw mention of it on a blog (Tech Crunch perhaps) on Saturday. I imagine it might have been closed now.

Sadly, I didn't bookmark it because I have no intention of using G+.

Funny, that's my exact reaction to Radiohead.
