Google news, apps, features, and easter eggs. Everything related to Google (the company and its products)
Kol Tregaskes
Steven, you're already on my list... eh in my circle. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Just added you to my circles. - Friar Will
Clicking the plus.google.com link above in mobile safari for iPad redirects me to https://m.google.com/app... - Chuck Kahn
Thanks Will-burr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Already on my list. :-) What do you think of it? I'm really liking it. - Kol Tregaskes
Seems exactly like Facebook. Not terribly exciting. - Vezquex
The big difference between Facebook and Google+ (that I can see from a very quick look) is that you can share to certain groups of friends instead of ALL of them. And that you can create many groups. The Sparks feature looks very interesting and I really do like the UI. - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol, sharing with specific groups of friends possible with Facebook. You can list your friends and then hide a post from lists or show it only to those lists. - batuhan icoz
Sounds long-winded? Either way I prefer Google+ over Facebook (a lot more) but I'm not sure it's as good as FriendFeed. Saying that I think it's only time I'll move to Google+. Like I say a lot on here, it's all down to the people and I see a LOT of FriendFeeders over there there already. The features are important too (though secondary) and I hear the Google dev team are adding new things all the time. - Kol Tregaskes
there's a way to invite people actually... - Alb. [CHIUSO]
Alb, there appears to be many sites posting workarounds but every time Google plugs the hole. What way have you found that works? - Kol Tregaskes
i was invited in with a message sent from within g+ to my gmail account. - Alb. [CHIUSO]
Yes. From g+, you can share a message with a single gmail account and this gives him/her access. Sometimes, it doesn't arrive immediately, - PaperDoll
/getalife - LANjackal
I don't have one yet. I'm lost at the trailing edge of technology. - Nick B.
You've been able to create groups of Facebook friends to selectively share for a while. They just don't make it intuitive to use. (edit - I see Batuhan already said this). It's under Friends -> Create a list. - Nick B.
Nick, ah. Never used it. Google+ makes it a doddle. - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol, check out http://circlehack.com :) - batuhan icoz
Batuhan, yeah I've seen that. It took FB that long and Google+ to appear to get them to make that. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Looks like I already have you in my circles, Bryan. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Kol yes indeed. How do you like Google+ so far? - BRҰANSAҰS
Bryan, it's amazing service. Not been this excited about a new service since, well FriendFeed. :-) About about yourself? - Kol Tregaskes
luv it how they all talk about google+ , but on FF - hey take you g+ talk into your G-spot.. I mean G-cricle and talk away - Peter Dawson
Kol, I'm luving it so far. Can't wait till its out of invite only. - BRҰANSAҰS
Me too. - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks all! - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Ryan. - Kol Tregaskes
Still no invite! :( - Son of Groucho
Boo, Google are slow with new invites atm. - Kol Tregaskes
I'm exhausted, now. Just went through and checked all of the profiles listed so far; adding any I was missing to my FFers circle over there. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Me too. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
I think I have you all in one or more of my circles now. - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Steve. - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks guys. - Kol Tregaskes
Thank you you two. - Kol Tregaskes
I know we're connected already: http://zoblue.com/+ ;) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Was Fossil Huntress now Heidi Henderson - Fossil Huntress
Mary Baum. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Zulema, yes we are. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Heidi, Mary, perhaps post your URLs here? - Kol Tregaskes
If you are after an invite then get over to here: http://bit.ly/kolgplusinvite - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Justin. - Kol Tregaskes
I would like you follow you all wherever you are moving to or are right now. Can you please add your profile here and share to others so we can gather everyone's URLs in one place above? - Kol Tregaskes
I don't hide the fact that Google+ is my favourite social network after FriendFeed. I really, really hope you try Google+. It's improved a lot since it first launched and the Communities are just like FriendFeed Rooms. - Kol Tregaskes
I would suggest this is the best place for FFers: https://plus.google.com/communi... - Kol Tregaskes
This is after all the All Things Google group and Google+ is a Google product. Not sure why there is so much reluctance to use Google+ - Michael Norris
Kol Tregaskes
If you click on Edit you can add yourself too. Original created by Mark Krynsky: http://ff.im/5rwh #whatsyoururl - Kol Tregaskes
I can not edit? :( - Matt Ruiz
I see ThenWang:) - K.D.
Matt, do you have a Edit button at the top-left of the page? - Kol Tregaskes
Very Cool! Just added myself! - TheHenry
i add myself too. - Semih Masat™
If you don't see an "Edit" button, you have to log in and add it to your own maps first. - John (bird whisperer)
To add your picture instead the default blue marker, you have to click on the blue marker at the top-right, click on "add an icon" link and type the url of your avatar - Roberto
I thought there were a lot more FFers in LA than is shown on that map. - Spidra Webster
FYI.. your picture can be: http://friendfeed-api.com/v2... - Tim Hoeck
Thanks for that, Roberto. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
I see I'm not the only one accidentally editing the title. Today I learned how to make a custom icon for Google Maps :) - Nick B.
I did that as well, I think :) - Tim Hoeck
Nick, I've edited the title and description, don't touch. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
done - RAPatton
i can't do it....every time I try, I edit the title... - laetSgo
Yay! Scott and I are on it now. :-) - Ordinarybug Heather
Cool! - Kol Tregaskes
D'oh! It wasn't showing me, so I kept adding. I ended up with three markers after I logged out and back in! - LB needs a hero!
Oops. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
This is pretty cool.. We need more scandinavian FFeeders though :) - Anton
Anton, perhaps post something here: http://friendfeed.com/ffdirec... and copy in: http://friendfeed.com/europea... - Kol Tregaskes
I'm on! (and sadly, the only one in Calgary - nice to see a few in Red Deer, though) - Nathalie

Nice job... Way to go Kol! - Mitchell Tsai
Just added myself, nice idea. - ialla
Probably being a bit thick here. Can add placemark, but how do I get it to appear in the list at the side with a link to it? - Son of Groucho
if you've added a placemark, then it is on the list - at the bottom of the last page. - Joel from IM
I find the UI horribly confusing. No idea how to add. - Stephen Mack
added :) - Mert Alemdar
Okay, surely I'm not the only one from Hawaii? - Ryan - @magicofpi
Cool! - mingqing
This is a cool service! Search Feature is too gud. - eva
Thanks for adding yourselves. Mitchell, it's actually Mark Krynsky's map: http://ff.im/5rwh - Kol Tregaskes
Note everyone, we can add this as a layer for Google Latitude/Maps on our mobiles. - Kol Tregaskes
Why my changes are lost after saving and refreshing the map? I just click edit, saved and done: where's my mistake? - Roberto
added - Thomas Power
added myself =) - Seyhan
Roberto, so you click on Edit, add your marker, hit Save then Done? - Kol Tregaskes
Just added myself to the map. The Google placemark positioning tool sucks, too. - Tyson Key
@Kol Yes, my name appear in the list, but the marker is missing in the map (tried with and without the avatar). - Roberto from fftogo
anyone finding difficulty to add yourselves on the map? 1.click on the map-this will bring you to google map site 2.you have to sign in your google account to get the edit button on the map 3.then click on the edit button and add yourselves on the map. cheers. - Hamid Mat sain MD

Kol Tregaskes
Want to be a chat buddy on Google Talk? If so either DM me or if you're brave enough post here:
_14664_logo.jpg
Note don't post your full address here as the spambots will grab it, also I'll add people but I'm being selective. :-) Note too you could actually use FriendFeed as an IM client if you use DMs and turn on IM notifications for them here: http://friendfeed.com/setting... - you're more likely to get hold of me via FF DM #whatsyoururl - Kol Tregaskes
Hey! Would love to be a chat buddy, however had trouble getting to DM you, I think its because of Twitter's troubles lately, for some reason even Friendfeed is not cooperating, doesn't surprise me though because of the integration of Twitter's API , .... so try and DM me I guess (sigh) ... I'll be glad when everything (Twitter) is back to normal (/frustrated) Tim J @ WWW.MHWD.ORG - Tim Tunnicliff from email
DM me on FF? - Kol Tregaskes
Count me in. You can use the "contact me" link on my site http://KeithBarrett.com, or twitter DM me. - Keith Barrett
"darksydeavenger" without the quotes would be the addy at which you could reach my gtalk. Not on it much, but when I am I get chatty. - Jonathan Hardesty
chrisofspades follows me everywhere - chrisofspades
Yeah for some reason FF would erase the content inputted by me from within the "To" text field in Direct Messages area. I could not get it to stick, not sure why. Didn't have any problems before when I went to DM someone else in the past, got to be a glitch Tim J @ WWW.MHWD.ORG - Tim Tunnicliff from email
Update: http://status.twitter.com/post... This may be why I am having difficulties ;) Tim J @ WWW.MHWD.ORG - Tim Tunnicliff from email

Did you know you could send tweets from Gtalk, just add twitter@twitter.com as a buddy, also works for PIng,fm (and Hellotxtx), see here for more: http://www.labnol.org/interne.... Any other useful bots? - Kol Tregaskes
Kol, twitter does IM again? I wrote im@twitterspy.org which is about where twitter was when I first started. You can do most things you'd do on twitter (post, follow, leave, search) and some things you can't (track, etc..) - Dustin Sallings
Shame there is no version of Gtalk for my Nokia! :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Dustin, ah OK, just it's offline. I use Hellotxt anyway. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Twitter's IM has been offline for well over a year. I wrote twitterspy because that was the useful part of twitter for me (and it's over a year old now). Try out im@twitterspy.org if just for track. That's where I find a good lot of information. - Dustin Sallings
There's always the ProcessOne Twitter/XMPP gateway. I can't remember the URL at the moment, though. - Tyson Key
The ProcessOne gateway came out about six months after twitterspy (open source) and still doesn't do much of what twitterspy does, much less better. A few of them came out after mine. Most of them seem to miss the point. Of course, I'm always glad to have people point out things twitterspy doesn't do well enough. - Dustin Sallings
Dustin, added it. Not sure I like that I have to enter my password though. - Kol Tregaskes
startoestudio@gmail.com - it's my place for social media! - Martha
There's the Jingle stuff, although that only functions properly with Google's proprietary client for Windows. :( - Tyson Key
icetigerza@gmail.com - Kim
Wow - so far I've really been into this user exchange thing, but I can't bring myself to share the IM handle. I love GTalk too, mind you - I just can't handle that much direct communication. It's a bit too much like giving out my phone number, I guess. - Ciaoenrico
Fair enough, Ciaoenrico. I'm being selectively too. - Kol Tregaskes
mithrandi@mithrandi.net (my own Jabber server, not GTalk, but it should work anyway); also mithrandi@gmail.com but I'm usually not signed into that much, it's mostly for Google Reader purposes. - Tristan Seligmann
heathersolos gmail - Heather Solos
Thanks. - Kol Tregaskes
easy enough to find me on gTalk or other Google services. Username here is the same as there...just add the required domain after the @. - Sean Brady

I am nickb333 over at gmail. - Nick B.

I would like you follow you all wherever you are moving to or are right now. Can you please add your profile here and share to others so we can gather everyone's URLs in one place above? - Kol Tregaskes

"Well I've gone and done it, I've now pointed my domains to my +Google+ page. Specifically to a search address that shows all the tidy stuff (not the status update-like posts etc.). My other blogs (WordPress.com being the main one) are sitting there collecting dust and no one reads them plus I'm always on here so it makes sense to move my "blogs" to Google+. In addition my Google+ #Currents edition is exactly what I want from a blog. It uses the content I already post here, has categories (Sections), a front page and a TOC. It works on mobiles (via Google Currents anyway) and easy to maintain The layout is basic but clean and there is nothing extra for me to do beyond what I already do on Google+. Both use hashtags queries so thank goodness I've been adding them since the very early days. I'm also thankful that I've been formatting my posts and reshares for a while. It has benefited the presentation on Currents, for one." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
Not buying it, Google+ still sucks. (Yemezler, Google+ hala poh gibi.) - @barisunver #beyn.org
In my opinion, I think people who put all their eggs in this basket are going to regret it. - Spidra Webster
I also don't understand why people would put their content on a service they don't own. - Trish R
I wouldn't do it, but if you want to, have at it. - Derrick
While I like G+, I agree about putting all your eggs in one basket - Bluesun 2600 from Android
Spidra, that's good then that I don't have any basket atm. - Kol Tregaskes
Trish, I don't have any blog of my own to talk about. - Kol Tregaskes
Has anyone here seen Google Currents btw? It's Google Flipboard. - Kol Tregaskes
@barisunver #beyn.org, why don't you like Google+? - Kol Tregaskes
Also, in regards to the notation that I put my content on someone else service. The majority of the rest of my content is on FriendFeed. I don't own that either! - Kol Tregaskes
