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.

By request so this information will not get lost, I've begun archiving certain posts that help users learn to use Friendica. This included converting to the long number assigned to my account rather than the username identifier on G+. I will post the archive weblinks here because attaching them does not "work well" at the moment.

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).
