So it’s been a few days and Google+ (also referred to as G+) is still a hot topic in the tech blogosphere, from those already using the service and those wishing that they had gotten an invite. We’ve already started to see the gamification of G+ as leaderboards of who has the most followers have started to show up; and of course we have had to deal with the Scoble Effect.
One of the other points that has reared its ugly head is the question of how people can start aggregating their content from other services into Google+. It happens on Twitter, Facebook, and just about any network that has an API and lets you auto-post to it. Hit the publish button and within seconds your content can appear on multiple networks with no more thought than blowing your nose; well actually that might take more thought.
At this point Google+ doesn’t have an API for us to access whether it be through things like WordPress plugins or third party clients and as a result G+ isn’t suffering from the same type of non-stop flood of headlines or posts that have already shown up on countless networks. As a result a pretty incredible thing is happening – people are having conversations.
