    Will Google+ be your new social networking site?

    Google+ has been around for a few months now in closed beta, but yesterday it's been opened up to the general public.

    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?

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

    I barely use facebook now, so I doubt I will be be rushing into the latest social networking trend.

    If it even becomes a trend. People who are initially attracted will be drawn inexorably back into facebooks by dozens and hundreds of 'friends' who feel little compulsion to switch over. The only way to bring people in in significant numbers is to draw in whole networks at once, and when you consider the range of functions and accessories anchoring individuals in facebook, the urge of some to try out something new will be overwhelmed by habits of those who won't change no matter what.

    Probably.

    Facebook and Twitter, meh. I don't really care what some girl I hardly knew in high school is paying for lemons in East Lansing, Michigan. Google + might rock me, but not if it is just a flashy Facebook.

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

    I personally don't like Facebook and Twitter, mainly because I think they're a waste of time and because I can only look with disgust at how so many people are addicted to pointless things in SNS.

    I don't really use social networking sites. I consider them a huge breach of personal and professional safety. Especially Social Networks that make deals with search engines and clearly breach their own contracts.

    I seldom go to any of these sites, and find them a waste of time.

    Girls do not pay for anything in East Lansing. Just sayin'.

    I'll probably try Google+, but I'll be shutting down my Facebook presence as best I can regardless. I don't like the Facebook UI or security.
