A hands-on look at Google+, using Google+

The CNET News staff takes a look at Google's new social-networking site. We like how Circles lets users segment friends, but we think the way the system suggests connections is challenging.

Editor's note: A handful of CNET staffers received access to test Google+. This review was written using the social-networking site. The comments were rearranged so the article would flow logically. We'll continue to review the site as Google makes adjustments before rolling it out widely.
