Now that I'm there, and figuring things out, I've decided I really like how Google Plus works. It's clean and unsophisticated. I like how it's integrated with Picasa and all the other Google tools that
Right now, Google Plus' fatal flaw is that hardly anyone is on it. As my BIL Scott put it, it won't be until a certain critical mass migrates to Google Plus that I will be tempted to delete my Facebook account forever.
But yes, I am tempted, if for no other reason than because exiting Facebook and starting anew with Google Plus gives me a graceful exit from awkward FB friendships I'm too nice to end decisively. In the three years I've been on Facebook, I think I've un-friended exactly one person. Anyone else, I think I'll get around to it someday but then what if they ever find out I did it and what's the harm of just leaving the friendship and oh well I'll just block their status updates. (Unlike Jeremy, who is so ruthless about pruning his FB friends that my own mother went onto the chopping block once. Don't worry, she was rescued.)
Which brings me to a gray area of Google Plus, and a question. On Google Plus, you organize your people into "circles," and you can create and name your own custom circles (Friends, Family, Acquaintances, Palmers, etc.). So theoretically, I could have a circle called "people who only ever see me smile even as I secretly hate them." My question is, they can't see that title, right? For all its transparency, that's something about Google Plus that is not clear to me.
What have you discovered about Google Plus? What am I totally missing? Will Google Plus ever woo you away from Facebook?
