My Google+ Experience (so far)
Or to put it another way.... Some half-assed rantings of an ordinary Google+ user Joined: 9 Jul 2011 As is normal in any new relationship things never go quite the way you hope they do at first and you find you're having to accept your new beau's foibles and shortcomings as charming idiosyncrasies. Things are no different over at Googles (nearly) new Social platform :- Google+ which at time of posting is still in private testing with just a mere 25 million users.
Facebook Overrun with Scams
If anyone has been paying attention recently, you may have noticed that Facebook is becoming overrun with scams. Everyday a new one is being discovered but, unless you regularly check security blogs you probably don't know much if anything about them. A significant number of them are survey scams which generally look like a genuine link posted to your wall by one of your friends. What you may not know is that your friend got conned into a "Clickjacking" scam and unwittingly sent the same link to all of his friends.
Facebook Comments & Connect Panel
This is an alternative to the built-in comments system. It allows Facebook users to leave comments on your site in News, Articles, Photos, Downloads and Custom Pages.
You must have a Facebook account for this to work. If your site is to have many comments boxes, it is strongly recommend you specify a Facebook app id as the administrator (all administrators of the app will be able to moderate comments). Doing this enables a moderator interface on Facebook where comments from all plugins administered by your app id can be easily moderated together.
Visitors can also Tweet about your page, Google+1 it and Like it.
Update: v1.1 - Added Tweet, Like and Google+ buttons v1.2 - Fixed download ID error v1.3 - Validated G+1 code v1.4 - Fixed (another) download id error, cleaned up URL identification, added page title to tweets. Fixed Like button not showing in IE bug.
