I think it would be nice to have Google Plus as one of the share buttons.

    Possibly, but then it can be overloaded with share buttons

    A few more share buttons, like Google Plus would not over load it. Also, Google/ Google Plus is huge. Why not add them?

    I'm not so sure if google+ is widely used at all...

    @EclipsedStar Google Plus is used a lot. Join and see all the Pages and Groups there to join. It really is an awesome place especially if you are into Tech/Science/Mathematics.

    I have a Google+ and to be honest I don't see a lot of activity...but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. :)

    Also, Google Plus is linked to all YouTube accounts. If you have a YouTub accound you have a Google Plus and vise versa. You clearly are not using Google + if you do not see a lot of activity

    Here are some stats http://www.statista.com/statistics/265773/market-share-of-the-most-popular-social-media-websites-in-the-us/ http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/27/facebook-dominates-social-logins/ Google + has a good share and is worth adding a social link

    Yes and with Google Plus account. It is second among social networks. It beats twitter. If you are going to have social links one should at least have Facebook, Goolge + and Twitter

    Really the more the better but I think those should be the three a site should have.

    I'm not against this idea at all, but I was just inclined to bring up my personal experience with using Google+. I also took into account the number of friends I have that actually use that site. Yes, several use the YouTube aspect of it. However I am part of groups that some of my friends have made and I do not see a lot of activity. Again, I do not mean to go against it. It's just my experience.

    I just think that this site should be more about studying then actually spending time sharing stuff on kik. I know, you would get more help that way, but Open Study is about learning. I love the idea, I just think we should stick with Facebook and Twitter.

    @DARTHVADER2900 This is a feedback from. This site is a "business" and a Google Plus share link will only HELP the business and it is easy to implement. Why limit to just those two?

    The CEO is busy with other things. She doesn't have time for this kind of thing. Like I said, its a great idea, I am not against, I just think we need to spend more time studying.

    @mathman101 I have a facebook but I am on Google + a lot more and prefer to use my Google Plus. Also, my college uses Google services such as Google +/ Mail and where I work, we use Google services and we all have Google + accounts there too.

    I dont see how this benefits OS maybe you should explain WHY this would help IMPROVE OpenStudy.

    Maybe because OS could have a Google+ account/email so people on Gmail and Google+ could maybe find out about OS from there?

    Nothing wrong with the idea but I don't think it would add anything as the facebook and twitter buttons are also rarely used.

    So if they are rarely used why can't they put the google plus button?

    Even if they are rarely used, all advertising of OS is a benefit. I would use Google Plus but not the others because I do not use the others. These share links help spread OS all over the internet and to thousand of people. The three main ones should be up there imo. I would use the Google Plus one but it is not there so OS has missed out on me shareing and all my friends and followers from seeing a link to openstudy. Advertising is a powerful thing

    Yup. We do need to add that. But be mindful of the crowding problem. I am thinking about it...
