Does anyone on here use it ?

If so does it have any advantages over Facebook. :-S

Hi Ann,
Facebook is great once you've sorted your security settings out. :-D

GOOGLE + is a similar sort of site to Facebook.
I've been playing about on it for an hour or so, and I cant see any advantages over Facebook.

I am on Facebook, tried Google Plus when it was first about, but couldn't get any friends to join me :-( Tightened up my Facebook security and stayed with it

I didn't really understand the circles ether Budgie. I only joined Facebook to stay in touch with a few people off of here when I left a few years back. I have very few friends on there to be honest. Guess if they had been on Google Plus I would have persevered with that, not sure it was around in 2007 though
