    Default Google+ For The Pittsburgh Sports Forum

    I'm pleased to announce that the Pittsburgh Sports Tavern is now on Google+. Google+ is supposedly Google's answer for Facebook as far as Social Networking sites go. Google has tried and failed in this in the past before but seems to be really hyping the heck out of Google+ this time.

    So, if you have a Google+ Account be sure to add the Pittsburgh Sports Tavern as we will (when the availability is there and I get the time) be pushing out continuous real time updates through Google+ as we do on the Tavern's Facebook and Twitter sites.

    **NOTE**

    I will add an icon and profile field for anyone that has a Google+ account so that they can add the information to their Profile as we do with Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and Youtube along with IM services like Yahoo, AIM etc.... I just happen to be on vacation right now, so I'm limited to only having the chance to do this stuff in the morning and late at night.



    Pittsburgh Sports Tavern Google+ Page (can also be accessed by clicking the button on the Follow Us section on the sidebar menus on the Forum Main and Pirates Tavern )

    I had a Google +1 Button added here that was slapped on with a really nice Mod that enables Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon etc.. I don't sue them all, just Facebook, Twitter and Google+ if one has noticed.

    There's currently an issue with Google +1's button where it is causing page load speeds to increase by a ridiculous amount and I've noticed it too. I want to say it is more isolated to Firefox users like myself, but it certainly causes me to hit the Refresh button one too many times to force a page load.

    So, until Google fixes this issue, which they are working on it, I disabled the Google +1 option for now since I find it more important to have a faster loading site than a +1 buttion for something that is still in Beta like google +

    that button is different than what I was talking about but... You add the long *** number that is your ID for Google +. In Google + hover over your picture and right click and save the URL to it. Paste the URL into your browser and just take the number and put that into the field here.

    Eventually Google should come up with something better than an archaic number system. I feel like ICQ with a long *** number as my ID

    Yeah I wasn't clear but you understood. Yeah ICQ I used to use it. It's actually still popular but no one speaks English their anymore. Something about language support.
