Yesterday, Google pushed out an update to their highly popular Google+ application. It isn’t just some small change either. It looks like the boys and girls at Google are investing their time and resources into the application, and it is quickly soaring over the usability of the Facebook app. Poor FB, it’s becoming extremely neglected lately. Google+ has now reached more than 20 some-odd million users, and is expected to grow at an exponential rate now that inviting friends has become an option for everyone. Watch out, Mark!

Is everyone having a great time with Google+ so far? I suppose the main question is, has everyone received an invite yet? Go be a social butterfly and invite everyone you know.
