So if you have not heard about this yet or did not read my last post, Facebook has competition.
Right now it looks like mostly techy people are on google+. I finally got an invitation from a friend, which seems to be the only way you can get in. It took me about a week to find someone who was on it that could invite me in.
I know, do we really need another social media platform? YES!
It is very similar to Facebook in its look, but seems to work better if you open in Chrom or firefox. Google+ is just in the beginnings, I can’t say if it will catch on or even be around in a year.
I found it easy to set up my profile (which pretty much loaded straight from Facebook) , but loading pictures took a long time and I had to do them one at a time even though they were all in the same album.
I do like how you can group your contacts, and I love that if I want to send a post out to just my coworkers they are the only ones who are going to see it. So being able to choose who sees the post and who doesn’t in a click is nice.
You can make posts, but I haven’t seen where you can post to someone elses wall. I was able to comment on another post. I will continue to play around with this along with everyone else who is on it. I have downloaded people into it, but not many people I know are in there right now, so I may have to find some geekier friends.
I will post more as I play with this new face in social media.
