It’s only been a short time since the launch of Google Plus (Google+/g+) on June 28th, but it’s already amassed a substantial amount of users. Several publications are speculating that it will reach 20 million users this coming week! With so much excitement about this latest service from Google I thought I’d take a moment to share some cool thing I’ve seen floating around the web. Rather than reinvent the wheel I’ll just point you to the original authors where necessary.
