    Google + (or Google Plus) is still in it's infancy but I think it could be going somewhere - 20 million + users in the first 3 weeks, when it is still invite only and Google hasn't rolled out its inevitably massive advertising campaign yet. I was just wondering if many hubbers are on Google +. Are you just dipping your toe in the water, or working hard at establishing a presence on there to ultimately drive traffic to your hubs/websites?

    If anyone wants an invite btw just give me a shout (I noticed I'm not the first to mention, but thought I'd offer anyway).

      Dipping my toe - waiting for it to take off and get more features.  Right now it feels lacking.

        I will be writing articles soon past some beta testing and POV for the additional extensions G+ will be releasing. I am very excited about this new tool and hope to continue to build the momentum for all of my friends and clients.

        People are hearing so much about it being a Facebook Killer they are not realizing the impact this new functionality can have on search social and more.

        I thought it was only me. I have spent lots of time "networking" on other sites. It has resulted in hours of wasted time, and maybe 5 people from one particular book readers site that drew a few people to read book reviews I did. I was already spending so many hrs. on HP, I don't want to live my whole life online. I did see on Linked In that 90% of people on Google + are men. I'm thinking about it.

        If you want to make more money on Hubpages, it won't hurt.

        In fact it is way better than all the other Social Networks that I am apart of.

        I really do like it a lot, as a social network. Far better than facebook.

          I'm not sure, feels like the 'Virgin cola' of social networks, Google trying to take on what Facebook have already dominated. Google are doing a Richard Branson and trying to take a percentage of a particular market.

        I use it and I do get some traffic from it.  Forget Twit and FB, nothing ever comes from them.  Right now Google + seems pure, like FB used to feel.  It's nice.

        I'm on Google+, but I don't even really know why  lol.  Originally, I'd run into the thing to "create one, big, author profile in Google".  I didn't think/know the profile would end up having Google+ added to it.  So, thinking that creating the author profile was a wise idea these days, I did that.  A couple of months later I woke up to discover I had a whole Google+ account without even knowing it would show up.  lol

        So, I have it but don't plan to do much with it.  I did create a circle for "folks and friends from HubPages" (because that seemed like a good thing to do).  Other than that, I don't see myself doing anything much on there.  The only real "Internet socializing" I ever do is coming to the forums, here.  BUT, I guess it's good to know the + account is there if I ever want/need it for any reason.
