Don’t know why, but it seems like a good idea

July 13, 2011

So, thanks to a friend, I’m over at Google +, testing the waters. Just that I can control who sees what is a plus over Facebook…I’m so tired of having folks I didn’t talk to about my politics/religion/whatever coming back at me, when there was a reason I hadn’t brought it up with them! Got some good features, and I’m hoping it’s going to be great, once more join the party.

Do you think it’s a good idea that Google+ takes on Facebook?

    I’d love it if Facebook suddenly disappeared overnight. Haven’t spend much time on Google+ yet, but it looks hopeful…

    I think a lot of folks are holding off — when I go to their pages, and see no profile photo and no content. I think half my circles are like that, lol!

    It has the potential to get some of the kinks out that FB needs to change. For the “edit post” thing alone it worth it. I *did* find out you can edit posts in FB — IF you can hit the “x” in the upper right corner within 5 seconds of posting…sometimes, I’m just not that fast.

    How droll.

    Everyone had fits 4 months ago when Facebook decided that *they* got to say who and what your friends said was a “Top Story”. There was screaming, yelling, massive vituperation — and everyone is still over there… OY!

    And Google+? If grew in members at something like 40 million in 6 months — way faster than FB, but they must all be in limited circles because I see very few people there…which means I might have people in MY circles, but I’m not in theirs — just like high school, all over again.

    Social media is a bust. It’s neither Social nor media in the communicative sense.

    I had another stab at Google+ the other day, but still can’t work it out.

    In terms of social media Twitter is amazing. Very social, great for sharing and connecting.
