The Little Things: Google+ Notifications

Google+ lets you respond to notifications right inside the notification dropdown menu. The notification bar is present at the top of all Google pages…pure genius!

  1. Think this has much of a chance of catching on? Facebook as a lot of push behind it.

  2. I think G+ will easy grab nerds, google fanboys and Facebook haters. “Hangouts” has  skype-killing potential. At the moment there’s not a compelling feature set for the average user. 

    Social networks are all about friends. If Google makes it extremely easy for anyone with an existing Google account to opt-in and if notifications automatically show up in a toolbar whenever you’re on a Google property; if they partner with sites or create Facebook-connect-style single sign-on (maybe allow sites to install the toolbar to enable it?), then G+ has the potential for becoming *the* defacto social network, by brute force.

  4. Well that is certainly encouraging. I hope it does catch on. Now just to find an invite.

  5. DM your email address, I’ll add you. Not sure what’ll happen when they re-open invites. I assume you’ll get an email automatically.
