First off, who's on Google+ and what are your thoughts about it so far?

Also feel free to share your profile name so we can all add each other to our Spoilertv circles.

AGreed. I'm really liking it so far, but I'm yet to experiment with everything. If anyone is interested n it, by the way, feel free to let me know and next time invites come around, I'd more more than willing to invite people.

Yep, pretty cool, much more engaged than Facebook.

Still trying to understand all the implications of sharing/circles etc and looking forward to when they open up Business/Brand pages so that we can create a SpoilerTV one.

Agreed. Did you read the article (I can find it) about why they want people to wait regarding the brand pages? No real details as far as I saw, but it's worth waiting apparently.

I'm also waiting to see when friendly urls for profiles get added. I'd think they'd do it sooner than later since Google does have it's own link shortener. I created my own shortened link just to make life easier for sharing purposes.

Yep, I'm sure they will have a vanity URL soon :)

Yep, they open up the window for a very short amount of time to people who have registered an interest. These windows fill up very fast.

I think they are doing it to check that things remain stable etc.

I've heard that more and more invites will be going out and maybe by the end on July fully open, but that's unofficial :)

I've also noticed if you send someone a message using the "huddle" function on the mobile phone and try to talk to someone who's in your mail, it seems to spark an invite for them, even when it's closed. The registration was closed and I used that method to get my wife and best friend in.

I don't think they will. they've put too much into it this time to do that in my opinion. PS: Added you to my SpoilerTV circle CJ.

A friend of mine sent me an invite yesterday. I liked it at first glance but I'll need to devote a day to scoping out all the details. I just hope the security and user content policies stay better than Facebook.

Exactly, this is Google's last chance to get it right and so far,pretty impressed.

I've not been back to facebook apart from spamming on behalf of SpoilerTV :)
