Google+ may or may not develop into a product that attracts a mass following, but for now there’s one group that really seems to love it: Googlers.We’ve added dozens of Googlers to our circles and see a steady stream of activity out of them.
(Our “friends” circle is much more quiet).
So what exactly are Googlers doing about on Google+? Well, they’re talking about Google+, posting photos of their pets, and occasionally posting some pretty cool stuff.
We’ve been sifting through these posts and picking out our favourite things posted by both rank and file employees, and top executives.
For a company that’s generally pretty buttoned up, it’s fun to see its employees open up.
Vic Gundotra, Google's SVP of engineering, and one of the key figures behind Google+ posted this patriotic fruit salad
Kara Swisher spotted this one: Google exec Bradley Horowitz announces his engagement, and posts a pic of the ring
This is the first thing Andy Rubin's mobile startup Danger (which was eventually acquired by Microsoft) was building
The first Android engineer Brian Swetland posted the photo and said, 'Fun fact -- Danger wasn't originally building Hiptop. When I joined in spring of 2000 we were building a keyfob sized device called 'peanut' or 'nutterbutter'.'
