As Google+ Launched Communities
A Few Hours After the Launch
Background: Everybody and their mother started setting up communities and inviting anybody they could find. The result: A LOT of mindless spam.
How Does the Story End?
Well, things are very rarely perfect on day one and Google+ Communities are no exception to this rule. As the excitement dies down a bit, we can be sure Google+ Communities will begin to show their true utility.
The silver lining on day one is this:
- Users are excited about what Google+ is doing.
- Users are engaged and active.
- Users are building relationships and micro-networks on Google+.
The network, as fate would have it, is now showing significant signs of people being social with one another. That’s a great thing for all of us who have been waiting!
