Google Plus - Coming Soon

by Brian Curl » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:52 pm

Google's big shot at social networking and more. The instant upload of pics and videos definitely peaks my interest. Anyone have any more info or thoughts?

I attended a talk on "REVOLUTION, ROMANCE,ROI ON THE CLOUD Social Networking and internet technology advances" yesterday. The speaker stressed that not only was the upload of pics and videos speedily improved but also that security was on a much higher level.

While I do enjoy keeping up with my far flung friends on Facebook, I will drop that particular social media website like a bad habit if Google Plus is half as good. Some of the crap Facebook has pulled over the past year or two has definitely ticked me off.

I'm excited as I'm an Android guy and hopefully this will only make it better...

I've been keeping up somewhat, I guess I'll wait to they launch beta to decide. Sounds promising though...

I use Facebook pretty extensively and hate myself for doing so. I'm not in need of a social networking platform (much less another one), so I'm going to act like Google Plus doesn't exist.

I'll be dropping facebook like a bad habit simply for the fact that I can have the "Circles" and put some family members on silence :) They don't need to know they are basically being ignored and it would be a lot of drama to put them on ignore or just drop them on facebook, but those circles are a fantastic form of control and limitation!

You can actually do that on Facebook by creating "Lists" among your friends, but it's more complicated. I don't bother, but then, I don't have that many friends. :mrgreen:

The list thing doesn't give you enough control over who can and can't see your status updates and when you change the single custom setting it backdates any posts so what was once blocked from crazy family is now visible. I have some very conservative family and some very eccentric friends, so it can get a bit crazy sometimes.

Eeeuuuwww. :P Nuff said. I don't use lists, so I was just going by what I heard. But based on your persuasive account, I won't plan to start.
