Google plus is huge now. The playbook should really be able to jump into hangouts (like many of the other tablets can). This really sucks, because it was a big part of me buying this tablet. I shake my head once again. Prove me wrong RIM. smh........
Nobody uses G+ though. Its sad really but the features G+ bragged about were imitated, and better, by facebook just a couple weeks after it got out of beta, and Google has dine nothing but add games, and a much crappier selection at that.
google hangouts are better than skype. getting hangouts on the playbook should be on the top of the list for rim. blackberry has a google+ page https://plus.google.com/104087449469741657054/posts I like google+ much more than facebook. Some of you guys much have been asleep during the past week. The news was all about Google. It came out with a lot of great stuff. New tablet app for Google+. New Google tablet looks great. Everyone is talking about the Google nexus 7. No one is talking about Playbook. RIM is so slow with updates and new hardware. When people see me with my Playbook they as me is it a Samsung Tab. Most people don't even know there is a Blackberry Tablet. RIM is not doing well and that is a fact. You should be able to do google hangouts on the PlaybooK. Hangouts are more important than Hulu and Netflix .
Google + should replace Facebook, but once invested in an "ecosystem" inertia will often keep the Average Joe from taking the leap, same issue as with the new BB10 models. What's needed is a compelling media campaign, along the lines of an international "Leave Facebook for Good Day" and set a date. I would love to do it, but a lot of my friends aren't on G+.
Google Hangout is a crap as Google cuts the option to add non Gtalk users to your Gtalk user list. For the experts: You can't chat outside of Hangouts anymore as you could before, XMPP S2S is switched off by Google :-(
