Google+ Style Points
“Unexpected intrusions of beauty. That is what life is.” – Saul Bellow
I’m a Google+ fan.
It’s been the Facebook replacement I’ve been searching for with the extensive privacy settings, wider variety of content and improved personal interaction that Facebook has, to date, failed to provide.
One of my favorite features is the ability to create and share albums with very particular groups of friends using “Circles.” Images can be wildly thought provoking and inspirational in the right context, and it’s nice to be able to share something other than last night’s bar pics with my friends, co-workers and acquaintances.
My biggest move within Google+ is an album I ended up calling “Style Points.” It’s the tumblr I never got around to creating—a collection of images that made me think twice about the people, places and things captured within.
If you’re on Google+, or even if you’re not, check out the album and +1 the images you like. It’ll help me as I continue to add to the album.
