1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yeah. It's dead. It was never alive though either.

    Too bad, I really liked the concept of friend circles.

    There was a lot of hype that FB was going to copy this feature, but it never really materialized. I mean they did make it slightly easier to create groups, but it's not even close to the same level of ease of use and functionality.

    I still think it's too early to write it off. Google's "Project Glass" is a pretty cool example of how there is still lots of room to innovate and improve social networking. If the project is able to develop products that people actually want to use, switching over go G+ becomes worth the hassle.

    Isn't that around the time that Google started merging G+ with it's over services? In search, Gmail and so on? Not surprising that visits started to peak then, but I doubt many people stuck around after the curiosity wore off.

    Yeah this is a good point. More importantly though, it's your turn on words. :laugh:

    I actually believe in Google, not in this concept but they will come up with something very good that will make Facebook look like shit. I hate Facebook...

    give it time, when enough people switch over more will be going on. I wish facebook was for university students only (alums or current).



    +1, facebook is getting old

    google plus almost screwed me over this weekend, I apparently had the automatic picture share feature turned on and I was not aware of this. I come back and login to find a buch of pictures uploaded on google plus, luckily nothing was published.

    Oh, well I don't have a google + account yet. Just checked it out fast and didn't like it. But the idea behind it is very good. I liked the old and first facebook.

    I wish the mobile app allowed you to tag friends in posts. Without this mobile Google+ is pretty useless for content generation. On a related note, I really don't understand the mobile app at all :(

    I gave it my best shot, but couldn't get G+ to stick.

    Absolute ghost town.
