It truly is all the rage! It is amazing and an awesome way to network with other writers and people of like minds and interests. What is "it", you ask? It is Google+. "It" is going to revolutionize the way we communicate with each other.
"Is it like Twitter?" You ask. No. Twitter only allows you 140 characters to say what you want to say.
Is it like Facebook? No. It is MUCH more than Facebook. It is everything that Facebook is NOT! Facebook is more of a family and close circle of friends thing, with drama, and girls with duck faces, and silly games. I suppose that Facebook is fine if you want that sort of thing
Google+ is much more. Google+ has none of what Facebook has. Google+ is a REAL social NETWORKING thing. Are you a writer? Do you want to communicate with other writers? Easy, go on Google+ and create a circle for writers, search for writers, add those writers to your new circle. You will start getting posts from those writers as they post to their circles. The cool thing is, those writers don't have to add you to THEIR circles, or, they can. Most do. Before you know it, you have a whole new circle of friends.
Are you into photography, or the occult, or fluffy bunnies? There are circles for that, if you create them. The possibilities are limitless. It is a real NETWORK!
Don't take my word for it, though. Why not get in on the fun? It takes an invite to get in at the moment, because it is still in Beta, but you are in luck. I have invites! Want one? It is as simple as asking for one in the comments of this post. Leave an email address for me to send it to, and you are IN!
C'mon guys...get in on the new generation. Just DO IT!
