I’ve been trying Google circles for past few days, I really like it a lot over facebook. The two main selling points for me are:
- Fine grained privacy control
- Media sharing
Fine grained privacy control
I am no rock star. But, I have a public life side of me, (educational videos on youtube and blog posts). In facebook, I only had two options, seem rude to people who are interested in me or Giveaway every single detail, I would share with my closest of friends
Google Circles on the other hand, handles multiple levels of privacy very delicately, as every normal man expects
I previously had photos on my phone taken on the go, they were beautiful, and I wanted to share them on facebook. For, some reason I didn’t like the idea of facebook app on my phone. So, I had to transfer photos to PC and upload it to facebook. Considering, my geek skills it is not a tough task, (Hell, not even a task). But, still those photos never found their way into facebook. Why? I’m lazy.
Now, in android and Google plus integration, I have more reasons to be lazy and still get to share my photos with ease, without going through, the hassle of one very easy extra step. It may not seem like a lot, but, you’ll see the difference, once you, use it
Google Plus / Circles Invite Giveaway
Since, Google Circles is not open to all, and uses invite only system, you may find it hard to find an invite. If that is the case. I can help you by initiating the invite process. To get an invite, do the following steps:
- Leave a comment with your Email Here
- It is not an invite, but it kinda is, in other words, if it doesn’t work, smile and go do what you were doing and try after a few hours
- Use Google Chrome, (I’m not sure about this, my friend said, the link worked on chrome, not firefox, It may be superstition, So, if the link does not work of firefox or IE, Try it with chrome)
