    I stopped using Google actually and I certainly won't be using their social networking site.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Facebook users... will you switch?
    Do you think the 2012 presidential candidates will invest time and money into Google+ like they did Myspace in 2007/2008?
    As with any other social network, they likelihood of use stems from the community. Until there is enough users in any given community I am involved with, Google+ is on the backburner. That said, I am liking Google+, though I have not used it much.

    Re: Will Google+ be your new social networking site?

    Honestly I am considering canceling my facebook account and forgetting about social networking all together. With Facebook trying to make it more and more simple for people to follow my every move, I have no interest in giving them so much power. I've posted maybe 10 things on my wall in the last year, and basically only use the site as a digital contact list in case I want to plan something with a group of friends.

    I liked Facebook better when only college students could use it. I felt like I could actually trust them back then...

    What is the problem with the security. I keep hearing about this but not sure what the issue is.

    Some of 'em do, I imagine. Not sure about now, but when I went to U of M, MSU had one of the best girl-to-guy ratios of major public campuses in the country. There was a reason I've partied there before.

    Definitely not the f'n sausagefest Michigan was.

    Apps are pretty aggressive with your data. Some apps are designed to snag your permissions and merely mine it, sometimes what is public or not isn't completely clear (though much better than before), etc.

    I don't like Facebook. The only reason I use it, is because I have to.

    If everyone switches to google+, then I will switch.
