My brother claims I need Google+. Does anyone have an invite to share?

Do you know how's their privacy policy?

I have a Facebook account which I may delete, as they've been doing creepy stuff: trying to get more personal information from users stalking them outside FB, automatic facial recognition (so if you appear on any pic even outside your profile, strangers can find you easily) and advertisement directed to your profile accordingly to the info they have about you...

Then, if Google+ has a less creepy-stalker privacy policy, it can be a nice idea.

Mainly for people completely unable to interact socially IRL like me /o\

Google has been doing this for a long, long time (not the recognition, but with the launch G+, I bet that's around the corner as well; and don't forget tineye.com). While FB can access your personal data (that which you share), Google can access personal data, your email, browsing/search history, shopping data, etc.

IMO, Google is a lot creepier, and if they cannot buy something, they make their own version: mail, the Twitter-like Buzz, smartphone, instant messaging with calling & webcaming, and now G+. I honestly think that they are seeking monopoly.

I'm surprisingly okay with this; We're reaching a state where huge amounts of info about anything/anybody will instantly be available to anyone anywhere. The future's not so far away anymore.

(It's been almost a week since your comment, but I feel you should be aware of this anyway.)
