In a previous post I mentioned the hoops i had to jump through getting a google+ account.
I think I go into it maybe once a month. It suffers the same problem that Google Buzz did: I'm seeing posts from people I don't know (ie. comments, seeing 400+ comments on EVERY scoble post gets hold about 752 comments or so.). There may be a way of turning that off. Maybe next month when I check my account again I'll look for it. And if I CAN turn it off I'll start using it more often
