One week into my tinkering with Google+, and I have to say this is not the improved social network we were all hoping for.
Sure the facebook boys (and girls) drive us nuts, but we tend to trade on that for a robust collection of people we can meet, get to know and interact with.
Now maybe it’s because I only have four other people in my Google+ circles. But let’s be honest, a social network only works as well as the people who are on it. And I talk to those four folks just fine on facebook and twitter already.
I’m not going to give up on Google+ just yet, but they’re gonna have to open the gates a little wider to get me to stay and become a regular participant.
In a segue to Friday ShareDay, here’s a post from Social Media Today that articulates exactly what I’m thinking.
Also, in a brief shoutout to my geek side (like that’s never on display here), let’s take a moment to tip our hats to NASA on the occasion of the last shuttle liftoff today, #STS-135 Atantis.
What we can often take for granted (and did, until Challenger) is an amazing feat, made of equal parts technology and bravery. Their achievements have paved the way for where the next generation of space explorers will take us. I’m excited to see what direction the space program goes in after the manned missions are gone.
