Last week I got invited to the new Google Plus (aka Google+) website, and I like many of you where thinking, Is Google Plus going to be a “hit” or “miss”? Now I like many of you use and love facebook, Yes its full of rubbish from time to time, but what website isn’t these days?
What I’ve found with facebook is that, I moved there because origianlly MySapce was “where it was at”, That soon lost its cool vibe when Facebook came along with its sleek looks normal user feel, without being run on the backend of the music scene and lack of adverts. Since then Facebook has grown and grown in size to what we know and see today, but the thing im finding now with facebook is people that I dont know adding me randomly, Im getting spam from other users who are getting “fraped” aka facebook raped, as its globally known as, and people requesting that I play farm ville because they need my help to make there farm better… Now im not sure if you to are in the same mindset as me but I couldn’t really care if Megan Fox added me, and if my nextdoor neigbour is posting a status of “I like man love, ok” or how good of a virtual farmer you are… All i origianlly signed up for with facebook was to see photos of me and my friends and organise the odd party or event!
So in my eyes Facebook has started to turn into Myspace, infact it hasn’t at all… its now worse! This is why Google+ has my vote, you’ll notice that the user interface of Google Plus looks a whole lot like Facebook, but better. The UI is cleaner, crisper and easier to navigate and currently it has zero adverts!
I’m in love with Google Plus maybe because I can follow other tech bloggers and journalists and some Google employees.
Lets just see how this lasts, and how long it is before facebook, or another site counter acts to this new Google Plus Service! I think they’re going to have a hard time matching something as clean and big as a good Google service like this! Its outright, brilliant!
Here’s a short video from the guys over at Google, and you’ll see exactly what I mean after watching this.
