Think Out Loud


Pete Springer/OPB

If you use Gmail you no doubt have seen the ads for Google+. You may have even received an invite, or two, from friends or family members to join the expanding circle of people using this new social media tool. But what is it? Why are people using it? How is it changing the way people are using Facebook, Twitter or even the ancient Myspace? How is it changing the way people communicate more generally?

If you know what a Huddle, Hangout or Circle is — let us know your experience with Google+. Or, if the last thing you want is yet another social media application, tell us why.
