Google made a big splash this week with the launch of a new social sharing service, Google+. But like any new social network, it takes a little practice to share the right information with the right group of people. Here's a look out to get up and running on Google+ without looking like an oversharing n00b.

This is the tricky part. Early adopters have flocked to Google+ since the launch of its Field Trial, leading to a temporary slow-down in invites. Google temporarily shut down +'s invitation functions 48 hours after launch, presumably to make sure this launch goes smoother than Buzz. They've resumed fielding invite requests since, but the process seems to be slow-going.
