This is an excellent presentation that kinda lays out Google+’s social (or not so social) role in the interwebs.
Now I’ve been on Google+ for a while now, and I have to say, it’s pretty cool.
That being said, it has been way over-hyped as a revolutionary social network (and just in general). About really the only unique feature this thing has are its “Circles”, an interactive drag and drop feature you can organize friends with. That’s pretty cool. Scratch that, it’s pretty badass.
I’m just saying, let’s not jump on the bandwagon just yet, just because it’s new and shiny, and it’s the cool thing to hate on Facebook while lauding G+ as its Goliath Slayer. I’m sorry, it just is slightly irritating to hear all this hype about Google+ and I’m just not quite there myself yet in believing all of the talk.
This presentation does bring up ultimately the real competition (hint…has something to do with the “cloud”).
