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
(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?
