The Trial of Google Plus

Comments: 2

  • I really wish you’d actually pitted the arguments against one another. Each point seems very detached from the prior one. With that said, I’ll provide my opinion.

    Google+ will replace Facebook for a core group of people, mainly online workers and marketers. Here’s why: Google Hangout. It’s so much easier to use than Skype, and wonderful for meetings, having the ability to share a user’s screen.

    Throw in with that the clean design of the social network itself and it’s actually a very nice product. Let me provide some proof.

    The other day, my fellow Content Strategists and I were trying to decide the best way to share articles. We’ve tried Branch, Kippt, and even built an app for ourselves. We simply couldn’t decide. Given that we had used Google Hangout a few days prior for a meeting (we were all snowed in), we decided Google + would be a fantastic place to share and comment on articles.

    The only thing holding people back is that there aren’t many people there, but I think that’s actually the appeal. Some of us don’t want to be connected to EVERYBODY, just the people we want to share things with.

    Facebook users are ordinary “sociable” people who shares stories and picture with family and friends.

    Google+ users are unsociable, lonely and creepy nerds and geeks who are cooked up in a dark room all day posting about how great Google Inc. is. :)
