It is not at all what it appears to be. It is your new Google false reality. YOUR LIFE REDUCED TO A STUPID GAME. Don't believe first impressions. This is NOT science fiction at all. Go backward into this hell:
Ingress Report | Ingress Coming Out of Beta Dec. 14 - EP34 [Meaningless]
How to play Ingress [Meaningless, insane]
Ingress: A Beginners Guide (What Is Ingress, Hack/Attack/Defense, Level Up Tips + Cautions) [Insane]
THIS IS JUST WHAT THEY HAVE REDUCED YOU TO. (But just like the first gmail, you must first be invited.)
To hell. Fuck Google+Fuck and Fuckbook. Corporate podmasters.
