Google + Almost Live, my thoughts.

Among the most basic of human needs is the need to connect with others. With a smile, a laugh, a whisper or a cheer, we connect with others every single day.

Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools.

In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.

We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project:

My thoughts,

To me it seems like Google is filling that social application hole that Facebook left bleedingly obvious. That being the ability to post content to some people or groups and not to others, right now, in Facebook your information goes to all of your friends, we are not able to post some content to one segment of our friends and not others, with circles we can distribute content to the people we choose easily.

Facebook’s attempt at doing this via their groups, was inefficient at best, and very confusing and intrusive.

Googles roll out of Google + seems to have grabbed the social media worlds attention this time, much more
than with their previous roll outs.

Interesting times ahead, I’ll be in there with both feet!!

Cheers

Pete
