    Howdy folks - anyone on here using Google+. I've been on for a while now and find it quite a nice place for photographers to hang out (once you brush dig deeper than the usual faces - Thomas, Trey, Scoble ... )

    One bit I'd like to make more use of are the Hangouts ... think multi person web-casts.

    I've been thinking a good thing to try would be to get a few people on here to consider getting together on hang-outs - perhaps pick a subject (photography related of course) and just hang-out.

    I guess this may sound a bit odd to some, but I think it would be interesting to try?

    Anyone?

    I'm on Google+ but I can't even remember when I last logged onto it as it was to quiet which is a shame as I like a lot of its features over Facebook. Amusingly when I had a quick look now someone has posted about not much happening on the site and the first comment is someone praising G+ for photographers so clearly I need to look into it further.

    Signed in, signed out. That's about the sum of my Google+ experience. I'm not a prolific FaceBook user either, I have no friends.

    I signed up for Google+ back when it launched, nobody I know uses it so I've never looked at it again.

    That sums up my Facebook experience. Just created a FB page for the website. Wrote 'Welcome Facebook' on the wall, and... errr... that's it :boring:

    I'm sure I'm missing something, as there is absolutely nothing there. Can't even search for anything, as there is no search field :confused:

    Looks like G+ is just FB from Google, so I think I just won't bother.
