To be honest, I have absolutely no idea. I can say that I have joined the site and am intrigued. It uses circles so that you can control who you share what content with. On my personal facebook account, I’ve made very good use of controlling what gets shared with which friends. However, most of my friends who don’t do social media professionally have no idea that that is even possible.
What do I think of Google+ so far? It’s a little lonely out there. In fact to quote my facebook friends “crickets are chirping between me and my 3 whole friends that have it,” and “It's like having a microphone, tapping it, and asking, ‘is thing thing on?’"
I can’t wait to get more friends on it so I can experience it like it is meant to be used. Need an invite? Let me know.
Just a follow up with numbers. Larry Page has announced today that there are 10 million users of Google+ who share 1 billion things per day.
