Well, since I invited you, you already have me in your circles but anyone else just joined up I'm there under Shadow Shad.
If you want help with setting up G+ and explanations on everything, can post up some recent blogs and FAQs that friends have shared with me.

It would seem that HLJ has added Google+1 buttons to their pages.

This is the Google version of Facebook's Like button, adding that page to your stream, so handy to share new items and purchases with friends. :)

first off, know some of the risks.
Never have programs that they that they shall cross post for you. that's just asking for trouble: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/ikymu/googlefacebook_allows_you_to_view_your_facebook/c24mfci

basic how to info on key commands and such:
Quote
Tips:
• _ italic text _ ➜ italic text
• * bold text * ➜ bold text
• - strikethrough text - ➜ strikethrough text
•@Alex Quinn or +Alex Quinn ➜ +Alex Quinn (press @ or + to link to a person in a post or comment)
• After you post, click the little dropdown arrow (▽) in the upper right of the post to disable comments or disable resharing (i.e., for things you don't want to spread beyond your specified audience).
• Press "k" or "j" to move up or down in the stream.
• Press Tab then Enter after writing a comment on a post to quickly submit it. (faster than clicking the Post Comment button every time)

Info on circles:

Tame your Google+ circle madness in 3 easy steps

After using Google+ for almost a year internally at Google and almost a week in the “real world”, this is the best way I’ve found to manage my circles.

Step 1: Face reality
Come to grips with the fact that you will never read EVERYTHING on Google+.

Step 2: Make circles for SHARING
Create circles of friends that you share with (e.g. Work, Family, Church). These are the circles you use to control access to the posts you write. People can be in multiple circles. For example, a coworker might also be in your photography club.

Step 3: Make a circle for READING
Decide on a few people you really want to keep up with and add them to a separate *Inbox circle. This circle has a selection of people from Work, Family, and Church. Face it, not everyone at work or in your family is that interesting. If you can’t read everything, you might as well make sure the stuff you do read is interesting. =)

> When you share something, use your “sharing” circles. Did you take a trip with your family? Share the photos with your Family circle.

> When you’re reading your stream, click on your *Inbox circle on the left side of the stream. This will give you a more manageable amount of content than the Stream link, which for many people is already a fire hose of random stuff, most of which might not be that interesting. You may want to make a couple other circles for reading different topics. I have a separate *Inbox: Photographers circle where I read a few popular photo bloggers.

Of course, when you find yourself with some spare time and nothing to fill it with, you can flip back to the Stream tab (or even the Incoming tab!) and read to your heart's content. Most of the time though, I read my *Inbox first.

Note that my inbox circles start with * so that they sort to the top of the circles list on the left side of the stream. (Except for the default circles like “Acquaintances” - I just renamed those so they don’t automatically sort to the top).

#googleplustips

Will post proper links when I find them.
Hard to remember who has posted what and when really.  :-\

@shadow some nice info right there especially the circle management hints from the googler, interesting to see that its been in use for almost a year internally at google (vs made in a semester for FB lol)

@mokana - plus one is essentially the same as a "like" button you may be familiar with in facebook, when you see something you "like" you press the +1 button and it adds it to your google+ profile in a section called +1's, as of yet im not entirely sure what this does exactly besides give you a handy list of things you have +1'd, google mentions its a way to share things you like etc but so far i haven't seen that in action (plus is in beta atm), so i imagine in the near future when you +1 something it will be shared with your followers etc, the difference is that they are building +1 into basically the entire internet lol, for instance you may have noticed google search results now have +1 buttons next to them, so if you +1 that result because it turned out to be a good one (and so does everyone else), it would factor into the organization of the results, and for another example HLJ had +1 now so if i (which i did) +1 a new awesome kit thats on special everyone i know will see this and look

for those with plus add some of the googlers (those who run google lol) its a good way to liven up your feed with some google/plus themed posts
