Are you on Google+? I joined a few weeks ago after receiving a slew of invites from friends, Google Buzz connections, Google Wave connections and everyone else. So far we like the UI, the circles and the privacy, but usage is trickling down. I know it is for me, because frankly, I don’t have time to update Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or my blogs (hence the 6 month hiatus). How on earth can anyone keep up with status updates and have time for friendships in real life?
There are lots of opinions are mixed in the industry as well:
- Facebook is Toast
- Google+ is Over (Site Traffic Down)
- Choosing a Social Network Winner One Year from Now
So what gives: is Google+ the new black? Or is it the new taupe? Or is it just out?
