It’s fun to watch a new platform evolve. Not only to see new features and functions as imagined by the creators, but also the way in which people figure out interesting ways to use it.
I’ve seen some neat things with Google+. I wrote about a couple previously here: 2 Awesome Video Innovations on Google+, a post that describes a game show and a yoga class run on the Google+ video collaboration feature called a “hangout.”
Here’s another neat idea: using the +1 system to quickly and easily take a poll, as shown in the screen shot below. You make a post and then add comments representing the selections for your poll. After that, each respondent can +1 a comment. Their +1s are automatically talleyed and displayed.
It’s not sophisticated, but it’s simple and effective. A nice little innovative use of Google+.
