So, yes, I got in to Google Plus a few days ago. As did a wide range of other people.
And no, I never did join Facebook. By the time it was on my radar I basically knew it as That Place With The Silly Social-Networking Games That I Want Nothing To Do With. Also, Peer Pressure Join Us Resistance Is Futile. You know how I am about the whole “if everyone else is doing it, I must want nothing to do with it” thing, right?
Which makes one wonder, of course: Why G+, why now?
Sensible question, complicated answer. One, I’m curious to see what Google can do having had years of watching Facebook’s screwups to learn from. Two, I’m already pretty closely tied to Google products anyway so it’s not as if I had create some whole new persona on a new system. Three, people whose opinion I value highly have indicated that they’re rather pleased with it, especially in comparison to other options on the market.
And so, I’m dabbling with it. I don’t know if or how long I’ll stick around. We’ll see.
