Google+ : How long will the Craze Last?

  1. Great post, it’s given me insight into the Google madness because to be honest I’d avoided deliberately. Google is good, but it just feels like their hyper-convergence and dominance/ownership over so much is a little intimidating, they’re possibly even more Big Brotherish than Facebook, George Orwell would have a field day analysing!

    1. Thanks. I’ve always found Google products to be extremely innovative and out-of-the-box such as Gmail. But Google has a weak spot about social networking site. The company is just too jealous about Facebook. It looks like they think no matter what we just have to have a social networking website. Thus Google Buzz and now Google+.

  2. One day Facebook will be today’s MySpace. G+ is still not publicly open but it near about 20 millions users. And it is easy to understand why the female users are low, it is not open for all so that the users of G+ are maximum geeks. There are few female geeks are here but you know the number of female geeks are lower than male geeks. When G+ will be open for all that time we can compare it with Facebook. On the other hand FB authority are in fear, G+ may destroy their dream. Please visit this link: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104550678234629742078/posts/1tRa2uPb1b9 here FB trying to collect user feedback inside G+ !!! How funny, they didn’t care what their user want, we had to do the things what FB wanted.

    1. I do admit that Facebook hardly cared users need and want. Users had to cope up with Zuckerberg’s repeated change in privacy settings, repeated redesigns of homepage/news feed and so on. It’s like Zuckerberg runs Facebook based on his own preference. In this side Google is better. But it will not be possible anytime soon for anyone else to take over Facebook. It’s just an unusually long-lasting trend around the world.

        1. You can’t seriously predict anything with high accuracy in technology world. It all changes with a big concept or people’s choice. But yes, time says. ;)

  3. I think that with the rather extensive tutorials and help on other aspects
    of this new idea the process is a good one, yes there has to be a certain
    level of understanding involved but it’s not exactly Rocket Science is it?

    A good posting Sajib and one that has
    some thought provoking comments attached…

      1. It will be interesting to follow this one and see where it leads,
        and thank you for your reply, I too was just thinking out loud
        so to speak and didn’t mean to seem flippant. I will call here
        again and retrack some of your previous postings…

        Be well my friend…

  4. You never know about these trends really but I honestly hope Google+ becomes successful. I love Google and would love it if it’d knock FB out… although it doesn’t seem likely it will :P.

    1. Not anytime soon, but we can’t say the future. Maybe it will beat FB. I don’t like FB’s monopoly either. And I’m a hardcore Google fan as well. :D

  5. I’m really curious about this Google+ thing, and I’m quite tempted to creat an account. But as I’m already trying to make my life less public on facebook I’m not going to go and create an account in another social network more :P And anyway, I don’t think any of my friends have a Google+ account xD

    BTW, good post!

    1. You can’t create an account now even if you wanted. Google+ is no longer available for new users. :P

      Like I said, there are mostly geeky type of people in Google+ network. It hasn’t amazed the general level of audience yet. It will take time.

      Thanks :)

            1. I’m not sure about it. Maybe you’re right. My brother has a Google account still he wasn’t able to get inside plus at first. Later he was allowed to log in, though.

  6. I don’t what the future holds for Google but I don’t see the need of using it if I can use other conventional services (e.g. Facebook). But I do like to use it once, just for a change. ha ha XD but nothing long term.
