So many of you know about my PostE ditor Google+ (http://goo.gl/zohaR6) Chrome Extension that embeds formatting controls into the share box on Google+. In a weird bit of synchronicity was, at the same time (though I think he technically released just prior to me) The Plus Editor.
The Plus Editor is a web based Google+ formatting tool and v2.0 was released not to long ago. While in some instances it's not as easy, because the controls aren't right there on the screen for you, it's also not constrained by the need for Google Chrome and you can bring it up and format on mobile (my extension doesn't work on mobile because mobile Chrome doesn't have the ability to use extensions), etc.
Daniel and I were in close contact shortly after we discovered out mutual creations and have been cross promoting for one another. He's a great guy and The Plus Editor is a great idea. If you're always forgetting how to format posts on G+ then give his website, or my Chrome extension (http://goo.gl/zohaR6) a whirl… I bet they help you out and make formatting a lot easier!

Facebook has figured this out. There IS another Paul Spoerry on the internet. We're related and have talked. We both have a PaulSpoerry URL on Facebook. Why is it G+ can't handle/figure this out? Canor someone on the G+ team explain this to me? I really don't get it.
We have seen a number of statistics in the last few days on how well Google+ is doing since it’s official launch out of the so-called “field trial”. Today we got numbers from Hitwise, a digital marketing intelligence company, and they show just how successful the Google+ launch was. On Tuesday, the new social network opened its doors to the public, allowing anyone to create an account over the age of 17, instead of requiring an invite to join like they had for the first 3 months.
