Top 10 Reasons Why Google+ (Plus) Will Win “The Game”

Use the email address you want the invite sent to when you leave a comment.

And you just lost. 😀

For my mom and other people who have no idea what Google+ is go [HERE] (it’s Google’s new social networking… addition to their suite of services).

Reason #10 – It’s Not Fucking Wave!

Google might do stupid things (Wave, Buzz) but they’re not stupid. They’re constantly learning from their failures (so far). The only thing G+ has in common with Wave is that they were both created by minds working for Google (and they have a lot of minds working for them.)

Reason #9 – Orkut

Lots of people in the know know this, but there are even more people out of the know. Google already owns a massively successful (in Brazil) social network. It’s called Orkut. I’ve long thought it was a better user experience than Facebook, but it didn’t have any of my peeps on it so I haven’t played with it for over 2 years. It was better then than Facebook is NOW.

Reason #8 – Circles

Facebook TOTALLY FUCKING FAILED with this. I’ve been trying to organize my Facebook friends with those stupid lists ever since I started using it. I finally just deleted people I didn’t really know and called it a fucking day. What I wanted then (and now) was a way to organize different feeds so I could effortlessly switch between seeing what’s up with close friends, internet peeps, family and others. Circles (a G+ feature) allows that.

Reason #7 – Facebook+Twitter+4Square = Win

G+ has basically combined the best of the top services into one sweet package. I don’t know about you, but I hate that I have updates with one service, photos somewhere else, check ins yet another place and my profile on Facebook.

Reason #6 – Android

Android isn’t exactly the Microsoft of mobile devices (yet! 😉 ), but it has very serious market penetration. Your social networking will seamlessly blend with your mobile experience. Sexy.

Reason #5 – Web Properties: YouTube + Blogger + Gmail + Picasa + Google Docs + Chat +…

Not wonder they call it G+! I could have easily made each one of the properties above they’re own reason, but I’m challenging myself! G+ isn’t a social networking site. It’s a social network FEATURE added to a suite of SWEET services.

Reason #4 – They’re Not The Trail Blazers

It’s hard being a trail blazer. You have to learn everything the hard way while everyone on the sidelines gets to learn from your mistakes. Remember MySpace? They were kings of social for a while. They just laid off half their staff (and are rumored to lay off 150 more!)… Facebook had explosive growth, but there’s still much to improve. Google has been able to lay back in the cut and take notes about what to do and not to do.

Reason #3 – The Cool Kids Dig It

I can’t speak for all of the cool kids, but I’m pretty cool and I know some pretty cool people and… yeah. We dig it.

Reason #2 – The CIA

Your government won’t let it fail!

(Queue X-Files theme music.)

Reason #1 – It’s Fucking Google!

Yeah, I’m a fan boy. I can’t even hate on Apple fan boys. They’re probably waiting for the Apple Social Network to come out (I’m sure it’s right around the corner). I want to have my Android phone, my Chromium netbook and do all of my work in Google apps.

Anyhow, that’s what I think. Did I miss some reasons?

    Apple has Ping, if you want to call it social media. I do like G+, I just hope that they don’t flood it with crap like FB.

    • miltownkid says:

      I don’t think that’s going to happen (being flooded with crap). Two reasons.

      1. You can already flood your crap on Facebook which is setup for it and has way more users.

      2. Google is going to monetize “better.” I think they’re going to get the business involvement with social media RIGHT.

  2. I signed up for twitter because of you. Now You Got Me Two More Social Networks To Sign Up For.

  3. Penney Morse says:

    When do you have time to do social media? I barely check facebook. I’ll see if I can give it a try–when I have time!

    • JoeSomebody2 says:

      Penney! The one who has her priorities straight! 😀

      *ahem* so yeah, I joined up on the bizness, and while I see cool features with it all, I don’t really know if it’s a worthwhile venture yet. You certainly are selling it though, so I’m looking forward to what it can bring.

  4. Pierre says:

    It’s Reason 5. They just offer so much stuff you already use.

    btw: need an invitation 🙂

  5. anthony says:

    Tks miltownkid

  23. Jake Jensen says:

    I was listening about this on the radio today. They were calling it basically a party that you arrived to early for. They said you could sit there at the party and just wait for it to start going up while you sit at the guys house and eat chips. OR you could leave for a while and come back when the party gets started up. Either way your going to want to go to this party. Now if your at the party you call and “Invite” your friends to it to make it fun. I guess i wanna go to the party,

    • miltownkid says:

      Yeah, I can imagine being like that if a lot of your friends aren’t “Social Media Wizards.” A lot of the people I socialize with are way ahead of the curve with this stuff so I have a lot of people to play with inside already. Without that it would be a little… slow. It’s going to be GOOD as things pick up and they improve the service. Just think. Every person with an Android phone basically has a G+ account.

  24. Milk N Cookies says:

  66. Dan says:

    Hey man what’s up? Thanks for giving a honest opinion on Google . Facebook has done so many things that just didn’t work. The privacy settings and organizing friends and family is a pain. Glad Google is stepping in to bring a good social network for everyone. Thanks for everything you do man.

    I would love to try out Google if you got some invites still. Save me from Facebook lol. Thanks man, take care.

  67. Matt says:

    Reason #5 sums it up for me.
    would appreciate an invite. Thanks.

  68. Michael Mannan says:

    It will be a good option as an alternative to FB because of the ease to create circles of friends and share selective media with that selectivity….and its google!
