The Ginger Jewish Genealogist, I received an invitation to Google+. Banai gave her insights on the application in a post, Google+ – My First Thoughts, a couple of days ago.
After being on the Google+ site for just an hour I can report that this old girl likes the interface and the ability to categorize people into 'circles' and easily communicate with one, all or some of one's groups. Setting up my profile and applying privacy settings was easy, I appreciated being able to have a preview of my public profile so that I knew what was in the public domain.
I am anticipating that I will use this tool for genealogy and have created a genealogy circle for this purpose. At the moment I have found a few genealogists from the US and four from Australia to add to the circle. I think that I have invited a couple of other genies but am not sure if I have the process right. I have also created a circle for my contacts from the world of education so that I can keep up with developments in ICT.
Until I get a few more connections I really don't know how I'll use Google+ but I look forward to further exploring its possibilities.
