Quite bizzarely I got another Google Places verification postcard this morning with a different pin which worked. Not sure why but I guess I shouldnt compain - now just need to wait 6 weeks for it to hit google.
Have been having a play with Google +
Essentially it seems to be Facebook without Farmville and the other games. Time will tell if it can challenge Facebook but at the moment not many of my contacts are using it so tricky to see how it could be used.
Have been busy getting Made Me Look up and running full time and one element of that is getting listed on Google Places. In the Uk you get sent a postcard with a pin number which you use to verify you are who you say you are.
I recieved the postcard today, entered the pin number, and........
It didnt work! Tried it a few times and then had to order a new pin which will arrive in 2-3 weeks.
Not very impressed to be honest.
