I don't understand "sadly".
Well , i say sadly because , ultimately , if nobody uses it ,
Google will just pull the plug on it and close it. This is sad
because having alternatives can only be good for web users as a
I think animals will fly before Google axe G+, it may well evolve but I can't see them closing it.
Yes, i agree that the big G have to make it attractive to
users so it is a least partly down the them to get increased usage.
i fear that a large majority see no reason to even try anything
else other than Facebook , so Google can do what they like , but
few people will even check it out. Some said that when Facebook
brought in the timeline profile format , there would be a big
exodus to other sites - G+ was the favorite to gain , but as we all
now know , people just complained but stuck with what they know.
I can see where you are coming from, but to me G+ is like trying to steer/Captain a tanker you're qualified to Captain/fly a place.
Mind you FB was equally as clunky in the beginning.
I've seen oodles of people state they find G+ clunky and have returned to the user friendly FB - well not in those words you understand.
In terms of choice I'm really please Google has the competition that is FB. I deal with Google, sometimes, on a daily basis and where we agree have words in Google thin they "can do what they like".
It's interesting , and i've said it before , the more choice you
give people , the more they stick to the same few things that they
know and love. Now't stranger than folk as they say !
Hmmmmm, not sure I agree with that. Before 2004 what did folks do without FB?
Where I do have concerns is when platforms have no competition, like MS Windows - there is no real competition. Nobody say Apple or Linux as there are no competitors in real terms.
I was a tad worried with the iPhone but that now has oodles of competition and the iPad, well anyone that buys one needs there bumps felt.
That just leaves search engines and other than on searches carried out through FB, Google still runs a muck.
