Obligatory Google+ Post

by on Jul.03, 2011, under technology, thoughts

Well, here it is — my actual post about Google+.

For those of you who still haven’t heard, the bird is the word Google+ is Google’s new social networking experiment. Their response to Facebook, if you will. Google has more-or-less tried this before, with Buzz, but Buzz never really took off. At this point, it’s difficult for me to tell what Google’s strategy is for how Google+ and Buzz will coexist. Right now, they seem to be completely separate, yet strangely intertwined. I have a feeling that as Google+ develops, it will eventually completely replace Buzz.

I hope this is helpful. Unfortunately, I’ve left out screenshots for now. I’ll try to get some in later this week to better illustrate what I’m talking about. Added screenshots July 4 @ 11:50 PM.
