A case of "Don't do as we do, do as we tell you"?
I dont get it - why would anyone want to use google+ when they already have facebook?
not eatting your own dog food guys?
just as im sure they aren't all using chrome OS in the gooooooogplex.
take one from MS....if you can't/won't/don't use it under your own roof why should anyone else
Most people do the social thing at work we all know this. Look at your traffic stats and it is a big du. I myself don't have the time to keep up with the Jones. You have twitter that takes up your time, FB, Google + and many more that get in the way of employee production. Many companies now block these and when people get home who has the time to respond to all the post by people in your groups. I just can't see me wasting all my time doing this. Just so much room in a persons life for this stuff. I don't see it nor do I get it. Maybe I am backwards or just plain dumb.
|After all, if the company behind it doesn't demonstrate an interest or confidence in the product, why should anyone else? |
We shouldn't, they know just how much data is being gathered on individuals via you+ and they know why you may not want that to happen.
I watched the news last night and each segment of the news had prominent offers to stay in touch with the reports via facebook and via twitter but, nope, not via you+. I have a feeling they'll tap youtube to try and bolster the numbers of people using you+ but since they already gather data on those users... who knows.
Along the lines of "cause and effect" - would it not be prudent to advertise the fact that you DONT collect information on people and that their privacy is of paramount importance? Or do people (users) generally not really give a toss?
Google+ is strictly for HUMINT (Human Intel).
Google is an commercial intelligence agency.
Anyone think Greyhound Execs travel on Greyhound?
Do they use Facebook and Twitter? If not, why would they use G+? Personally, if I found out that Bill Gates wasn't using an X-Box, that would mean nothing to me.

Why, is there an equivalent of private jets or 1st class airlines in the world of social networks? It seems to me Facebook & Twitter attract the poor and the rich alike.

Wait, EVERYTHING google has does that...
Why would they when there is a perfectly good and better created version already on the marketplace?
It's not like G+ is essential. If they are using twitter or FB more then maybe. If they shared stuff it would be about flying in private jets, speaking to financial advisers about investing billion$, huge estates with indoor pool and the likes, when they're trying to be "just everyday normal geeks." The 'I read this story and I like it so here it is' become old really fast.

I would stay the hell away from G+ doing while-logged-in searches.
I'm not a fan of Facebook but at the moment it seems like the lesser of two evils. It would be nice to see something other than Google or FB as a real alternative. It's no different than Eric Schmidt freaking out when CNet dug up all that info on him years ago and the refusing to talk to them for a year. It's a data collection tool and they probably prefer not to put their personal data into the pool.
