Can't believe I am the first to post a comment!!!!!!!!!!
On such an exciting technology!!!!!!!
As promised at last week’s Web 2.0 Summit, Google has opened its social networking site to enterprises, via integration with Google Apps. The move will see hundreds of companies pouring onto the social network and setting up business pages. Over the next few days customers of Google Apps for Business or free customers will get …
Google+ is proving a very interesting "place" to discuss things. There seem to be lots of people wanting to discuss things I am interested in. It does seem to have a chronic shortage of MBAs and liberal arts graduates.
Perhaps they are all staying on Facebook only, or that enhanced RSS feed called Twitter.
Google+ will not soon replace my wanting to keep track of friends and family but it is replacing a lot of FB use and it replaces Twitter immediately you set up your contacts in it.
You are a very small minority.
Many of my friends tried G+ and couldn't be bothered with it after a few days. It just doesn't have their friends on it, and their friends are still active on Facebook. So if they want to chat to friends, they have to use Facebook.
If your group of friends are all on G+ then more power to you, but I fear you are in a small minority.
"...considering how well Facebook has developed business integration." I must have nodded off for a few months, has Facebook provided new tools and really understood how businesses want to use Facebook or is it still botching stuff together so that it looks like it knows what it's doing. I hate to say it but Facebook need to contract Apple to help with UI design.
I've noticed that a ripple stream - a stream containing a number of publically posted posts that Google+ recommend - has appeared in my stream. Fine to integrate enterprise / companies into Google+ and notify users of changes and new functionality (a new features / functionality section would work) - not fine to introduce ripples / streams into my stream that I cannot control / remove.
One of the principal reasons I deleted my FB account and switched to Google+ was to regain control over what I considered relevant - not FB. I hope that Mountain View is not falling into the same trap of deciding on the user's behalf of what content is relevant to the user.
