It’s no Facebook.
Thanks to Nick Kellet of List.ly for finding this.
I have to say, while I’m on Google+, I’m not a big fan of it. It seems horribly disjointed, and when I’ve tried to fix or rectify things, well, you just can’t. I even had a tech writer from Google who works on the documentation of Google+ try to help me at one point, and she couldn’t. Now, the article mentions Google Wave. I did try that before they pulled the plug, and that seemed like it was going in the right direction. I didn’t understand why they stopped that. Google+ is touted as something big, but if users can’t figure out how to use it for posting their own stuff and adding "+1s", then what’s the point? As the intro to this says, "It’s no Facebook," and that’s fine–it doesn’t have to be. But it should be easy to use, easy for people to share and post on different groups and move around to customize like other social media outlets. I’m usually good at figuring this stuff out, but have never quite gotten a handle on Google+. Hopefully, they’ll get their act together soon.
