The release of Google Plus as a competitor of Facebook has put the cat amongst the pigeons. That is what is so great about the Internet that makes it so engaging.
Facebook has been around a long time and some people use it all day everyday. It has lots of facilities and some very engaging apps. Google Plus is very much in its infancy and as yet has a simple but clean interface. This doesn’t mean that it will stay this way. Google will no doubt add to functionality.
So why do we like Google Plus?
Actually its more about why we don’t like Facebook. When you post a message on Facebook all your friends see your post. Now I don’t know about you but when I post something about my personal life I don’t want my work colleagues to see that. Especially when someone replies to my post and doesn’t realise my work colleagues can see what they have written. Yes there are privacy options but fundamentally this is shocking. People have used it so long that they have just got used to it and accept it because Facebook do not listen to feedback, and when they do they take so long to change.
Google Plus on the other hand has started with this built in from the start. You create a circle of friends/colleagues and when you post (and they reply) only those in that circle can view or respond. (Correct me if Im wrong).
This is a fundamental in built privacy function and well done to Google.
I don’t care if all the other functions are not there, I am sure they will be.
