Well I'd say that works too.

Come now, every thread and tech subject has an obligatory XKCD comic attatched, if you can't find one you're not looking hard enough.

Yeah I believe G+ is not Facebook. It's also Twitter, Tumblr, Skype and I don't know what else but Google promises more on the way so it's gonna be a huge thing.

Goggle doesn't want G+ to be called a social network, they call it a project because it will include lots of integrated sstuff in the future. I for one just realized what a huge thing "Hangouts" could be just today(sorry I'm late).

Startup artists/bands or even established ones, also the ones who've lost their luster through the years could benefit with Hangouts. Why? People love interacting with their idols.

For example:

In G+:
You've circled up <insert your fantasy here> because <insert proper pronoun here> is your idol. Then that person(band,mascot,whatever) will sometimes announce hangouts and everyone wants to join in. This my friends is interacting with your fans in a whole new level. People will wait in droves just to get in that hangout.

In FB:
Follow your fantasy of choice. Hey, you now have Skype on Facebook! Oh wait, its 1 on 1 chat. Fat chance that person will chat to you.

There a reason while G+ is not FB(or is this a comparison I don't know)

I follow Ice T on twitter because I'm a HUGE SVU fan, and one time he announced a link to a live broadcast of him just chatting and giving away Gears of War 3 beta keys.

So I go, "Hi from Bolivia! You have a lot of fans all the way down here!".

Then he goes, "Bolivia! SHIT! It really is the world wide web!" Hahahaha, that was really funny, seeing one of my favorite television actors live, give a shout out to motherfucking Bolivia. :)

So yeah, bands can benefit from this too, I agree. :lol:

I believe we can agree Bolivia was 1 Sergio Tapia happier that day. :)

Yeah hangouts are a big thing there now, people who yoga together, some freaky lady watching someone tattoo someone, it will not be long before G+ Strip Poker Hangouts exist.

I find it ironic that he made a living off of songs like Cop Killer and now he plays a cop on TV. Very cool he tweeted back like that, though.

Another thing about Google+, it's a huge forum.
I almost got in an argument with Mike Elgan(an entity there) because he says if you circle someone and you don't circle them back their stream posts will still show up on your main stream. Now lots of us are debating. Interaction you can't see on Facebook. Plus, you can edit your comments/posts even if other people already commented on them which is a thing I've been waiting for Facebook to implement in a long time.

No need to repost this picture in every single thread. I've seen it at least three times here already. :lol:
