Google+ as a DB2 Resource

Last month I listed my favorite DB2 blogs, which prompted a reader to comment that DB2 bloggers should start taking advantage of Google+.

I wasn't familiar with Google+, so I set up an account to see what it was all about. When I started with it I wanted to compare it to Facebook. However, as I found others with interest in DB2 for z/OS and added people to my circle of DB2 professional contacts, I realized that Google+, with its focus on business networking, is a bit more like sites like Linkedin.

In short, Google+ looks like another option for DB2 professionals to connect and collaborate. If you're using this tool, please share your thoughts in Comments. What do you like about it? How are you using it to get in touch with other DB2 professionals?
