The sad news of Google+ shutting down came as a total surprise and we're are seeing a wave of refugees coming to Cake. We are welcoming you all, and want to help you set up a new home here.
A few things to know about Cake:
1. Cake is organized around following topics instead of people. When starting a new conversation you can add topics we already have, or suggest a new one.
2. We encourage in-depth, lasting discussions on any topic. We find that short, ephemeral posts don't get much attention here, but meaningful and interesting posts keep the conversations on top of minds.
3. Panel Conversations are for even deeper, focused discussions without any trolls. Start a panel by inviting panelists; only they may post, while readers add energy by reacting to each post.
Please ask any questions your have about Cake here or add a topic "Cake feedback" while starting a new conversation.
