So a lot of you guys have probably heard Google realizing it´s new «social media phenomenon»: Google+. People recon it as the facebook-gone-good site where, at least for the time being, you have more power to control the feed of news and status updates with circles – which is true.
I´ve made an account and although it seems pretty cool, there are some issues that I´m struggling to get past. Maybe it´s the people that praise Google+ in an effort to quickly establish themselves as Google+ expert that confuses my mind with thoughts such as «what´s the big deal?»
Yes, Google+ has it´s advantages over Facebook where your able to control your feed way more than selectively click on certain profiles to trick EdgeRank. Circles ables you to make some nice niches groups such as «Apple people», «over 16» and so on. People tend to hate on Facebook tough when it´s become so big. It´s not Facebook. It´s just that you have horrible friends on the site that updates bad statues.
The other thing is that although circles has a pretty nifty way to add people and discard them, it´s still a bit of a hassle to actually make new circles and add those that deserve to be there.
I don’t know. Maybe I´m such a Twitter lover that I miss the simplicity. Don’t get me wrong, Google+ is young and I am exited to see how it goes.
