Title says it all.
I do not like facebook, and I want Google+ to be successful.

So here is my effort to help make it better.

Let me know your gmail account and I will sent invitation. :)

I feel quite confident that Google+ will be a success. Google has a way of turning anything they touch to gold.
And I really hope this time is no different. Facebook annoys me.

I would very much like an invite.

Contents of reply and Gmail PM'ed :)

Google+ is the twin sister of Buzz. I don't have Facebook, but did get an invite for +. Tried it for one week and just like Buzz, I was bored and haven't been back since.

I apologize for the delay.

All invitations are sent out.

PerfectTan,
Google+ is nothing but a platform, a great one at that.
However, like any other social networks out there, its primary engine is the people.
And I see great potential in it.
Ever since its beta launch (yes it is not even open to public yet), it reached 10 million users (external link) after just few weeks, and there are over 1 billion shared items per day (external link).
That is the fastest growth so far even for FB.

Once it reaches 100 million users, which I have no doubt. It will be very stable and dependable social network.
Because I have no doubt that I am not alone on hating how FB system runs.

On Facebook you over share.. because friend you just met yesterday is your friend, your mother is your friend, your boss is your friend, your girlfriend's ex-boyfriend is your friend.

On Twitter, you under share.. because it is wide open.. one quick search and you are naked to the world.

In Google+ you do not have that issue.
You have complete control. You get to group whoever you want and share with only those selective individuals, with Picasa on its back.
Have you ever uploaded an image to FB before? How it resizes and re-samples the image? Then you will understand the horror.
Plus Picasa gives you free 1GB of image or video storage, but image size under 2024x2024px and video length under 15mins does not count toward your storage allowance (external link). Non-google+ users are limited to 800x800. So for most people it has unlimited space, and for that reason alone, it is worth having google+.

Some people who tried Google+ did not quite catch on it, because they were very confused, so let me share you some great tips (external link).

Hope you all enjoy them, and please don't forget to invite all those who you know. :)

Thanks for the link. However, I will stand firm that google+ is and will never be for me.
If you haven't already read the terms. I advice you to read this (external link)

All social networks and online services have fine prints. There is no exception.
It is part of the deal, a contract.

Adobe, FB, Yahoo, MSN, photobucket, flicker and etc, you name it, they all have same fine print.

Do not take the fine print for what it literally says, it is there to protect them for more than anything.
When you provide service to millions of people, such precaution is must for them.

In other words, all it saying is, you got one hell of a chance to file a lawsuit against them and win.

Even posting here is part of it.
Google this post and you will see how easily it can be found.
