Isn't that the whole point of the circles though? Your employers wont see what goes on between you and say the people in your circle called 'Newgrounds' or whatever.

Also, does anyone use the chat on the left hand side? I have it enabled but none of you guys show up as being online.

You need to post your email address and I'm sure someone here will send you one.
I'll do it myself if I can figure out how.

Go to the home screen and then in the lower right should be an "Invite people to join Google+" link. Just click that and enter the email address.

I think that's how it works anyway. I tried sending one to H-A-X-O-R-Z last night but he said he never got it. Maybe he has it by now, I don't know.

"Hey Googloids
Please don't post your email address on public forums. Email marketing firms are collecting
email addresses and the outcome is the Spam gathered in your inbox. Just PM your friends for invitations."

This was just posted online - So I'd say anybody who is posting their email address to the public for invites should probably stop doing so. Better safe than sorry.

I understand that bit, but it's more the whole linking my profile here. A Google search of my name would link back to Newgrounds and everything and...yeah.

If any of you do want to add me, then just drop me a PM :)

Something Google+ needs to sort out ASAP is decent links to profiles. e.g. plus.google.com/dannyisonfire

Everybody should, at the very least, pot your NG username on your profile somewhere.

I've got my NG username on my profile under Nicknames.

Also, I think for you to chat with someone you have to manually invite them to chat... So, that may be another thing for us all to do I guess.

WAIT! I lied.

Google's official help section about Google+ chat.

"Add people to chat with...
... Circles: After you've enabled chat you can select the circles that are allowed to chat with you by clicking on the arrow next to Chat and selecting Circles from the drop down menu."

I've just been adding everyone to my NG circle that has been adding me. It has gotten to the stage now though where I don't even know half these people's NG username.

I've been at that point for awhile, of course, I haven't really talked with to many people on NG other than a few minecrafters and those in a few other clubs. Really if I'm added by somebody I don't know, I just assume they're from NG and add them to that circle haha.

EVERYONE on that site is someone from NG, none of my friends or family even know about it yet so I'm just like newgroundsnewgroundsnewgrounds.

It's the same for me so far as well. 100% Newgrounds. I got my invite from one of my uni mates, but I've not added or even seen any of them on it yet.

It's still going to be a while before I actually switching from Facebook and making Google+ my main social networking site, if that happens at all. I know it's still young, but it seems a long way off from improving over Facebook yet.

It's pretty much 100% Newgrounds for me as well, which is totally okay.

I don't see Google+ blowing up to the point where a lot of highschool kids use it instead of Facebook. Their lives are already on their Facebook accounts, why would they want something else where they have to start fresh?

Who knows though, time will tell.. I'm happy with it being just Newgrounds and a few irl friends for me though. We can all talk NG stuff.


Yeah, whatever.

How is a profile URL with 25 digits instead of a simple username going to help with security?
