Let the Internet Memes Roll!
It's too early to tell whether Google+ will be a hit, but perhaps it's a good sign that users are already expressing their feelings for Google's social network through hilarious images.
Call it Google+ propaganda if you will, but these images have quickly gone viral--or at least as viral as images can get on a service that's invite-only. Here are some of the best.

Facebook Shows Its Age
I see this as more of a commentary on tech culture in general. After a while, everything old starts to look like the picture on the left.
The Most Interesting Social Network in the World
His status updates include a +100 button. Before the service was even online, he had to invite Google. His beard has its own social circle. He is the most interesting man in the world. [Via Tom Anderson]
