While the Facebook and Google+ networks have a lot of similarities, the way we signed up for each service is probably pretty different. Back when you first heard about Facebook, signing up was just the cool thing to do. But how did you end up registering for Google+?
Did you create your Google+ profile after your own reconnaissance, or were you lightly “encouraged” to do so by YouTube or your Android device?
How do you feel about your Google+ profile? Are you happy to have the service or do you feel like you’ve been hustled into using it?

Man, it was so long ago… and lay dormant for so long, I have no recollection what-so-ever of signing up to G+
Funny you asked. We recently migrated to enterprise Gmail which forced me into creating a secondary Google plus account which I’m using as a good thing because I’m using the new account for my personal rants and observations while the old Google plus I use for company branding and I haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to either one until recently and started following best practices like posting my blog posts to to Google plus account. What’s interesting is, within a couple weeks after actually starting to post with very little effort, Google analytics is showing $1600 in G+ referral website sales over the past 30 days versus something like zero since the beginning of G+? As a caveat the two identities slow me down during the day because my analytics and WMT is one account but Docs are another so my Gmail switching back and forth is a huge nuisance when I want to come back to gmail. Something I still don’t understand is Google yes forced me to link my one Google plus account to my YouTube account but still has given me a third Google personna just for youtube, but once again since it all became spaghetti, sign-ups for my YouTube channel are beginning to grow with a speck of sales coming from there
