For now, it is open mostly to technology industry insiders and the press.

Has anyone here joined google+? I think it would be cool to have a LMusers/linux users ring of contacts!
We believe that using Google Profiles to help people find and connect with you online is how the product is best used. Private profiles don’t allow this, so we have decided to require all profiles to be public.
Keep in mind that your full name and gender are the only required information that will be displayed on your profile; you’ll be able to edit or remove any other information that you don’t want to share.
If you currently have a private profile but you do not wish to make your profile public, you can delete your profile. Or, you can simply do nothing. All private profiles will be deleted after July 31, 2011.
There's little need for such concern. For one, even a billion dollar stake isn't a very big stake in Facebook, these days.
The Communist Party, ...insists on its monopoly of political power. And to maintain that monopoly, it tightly controls its own instrumentalities. ...the Party is in the midst of the most comprehensive crackdown on society since the 1989 Beijing Spring. Chinese leaders clearly view social media as a threat to their rule, especially after seeing its force-multiplying effect in the ongoing Arab Spring protests that have toppled governments.
