We've only got a few weeks left on G+! Around the hyperverse and the fediverse, I can be found if you need some help #gplusrefugees :)
Friendica is built by the community for the community and has more features than G+ or FB! You control the user interface (how it looks for you), your content (how it works for you), and your privacy (how others see your content). It replaces circles, collections, and communities out of the box but also integrates easily with other social media like blogs and Twitter.
Social.isurf.ca is on the latest release candidate. Come check it out! It's free and a great bunch of people connecting not only with each other, but also with others throughout the Fediverse - all 2.7 million users and growign. You can move later to another node if you like at some point - or even host your own.

Quick Tips on Using Friendica (a fully featured free alternative to G+)
Now that we are seeing some glitches in G+ that imply the shutdown appears to be starting, I've had a lot of questions from people looking for a new home. Friendica is a free solution that does all that G+ does and more (no waiting for features to be developed). I am going to link multiple tips I've made to help others see how to get started on http://social.isurf.ca
When you signup with an email account, it will ignore anything you put in for a password. Check your spam folder if needed to find a credential email from the server. Click the link in the email to find your temporary password and use that to login. Once in, you can go to your profile settings to change the password and begin filling out your profile. The following posts can help you beyond that! Check below on how to add me as a contact using my identity address firstname.lastname@example.org #signalflare
I wanted to share some quick tips for those who want to look into a free Friendica account which is very much like G+ and FB but with far more features and with no company looking to make profits off of your user generated content. You control your existence and privacy :) Click through this pinned post to find most of my quick tips!
