I read this snippet in Business Insider regarding Facebook’s troops defending their turf against the limited introduction of Google+.
Everybody’s on Facebook already. Philip Su, the engineer who worked on Facebook video chat, said it’s a one button click to any friend “on the social network that already HAS all your friends.” That’s definitely not the case with Google+ yet.
I commented: Yes, “everybody’s” on Facebook already .. but so many of my cohorts don’t really want to be there. I don’t need Facebook for work but I couldn’t do business without Google, GMail, Google Apps, Reader, and such. If Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter can provide all required social interactions, I heartily welcome having one less presence to maintain. Had Google acquired LinkedIn, it might have been game-over.
If you’ve got a Google+ account, what do you think? Does this resonate with you?
I don’t really want to be there (facebook) Took a 2 months hiatus and didn’t miss it at all.
In retrospect, entirely wishful thinking. But I like to dream, tilt at windmills and such.
