Facebook Employees Flock To Google Plus – AllFacebook

Google Plus, which has high aspirations of kicking Facebook’s butt, has quite a few of its competitor’s employees using the platform.

Since hitting the social networking scene last month, Google Plus’ game plan was take aim at Facebook’s 750 million users and win them over, and it seems well on the way to doing so, with 10 million users amassed after two weeks. The search engine’s social site bears quite a striking resemblance to Facebook, gathered many of its features from other existing social media networks as well.

Naysayers are proclaiming however, that there is nothing in Google Plus that doesn’t already exist at another social media site.  Google Plus powers-that-be are still trying to keep hope alive, that social network site users will want to, at some point, move their circle of friends into one central location.

It will be interesting to see over time which social network succeeds and which one fails. Perhaps with the addition of a surprisingly healthy number of Facebook employees, the newly established social site rival could in fact, reach their numbers goals after all.

Obviously, these Facebook employees are probably using Google Plus to do competitive research, but it’s interesting nonetheless to see how many staffers are sizing up the competition. Check out the list below: Continue Reading →

Google+ Exodus shutdown by Facebook

Google+ Exodus shutdown by Facebook
Personally I find it quite amusing how Facebook has been scrambling over the last couple of weeks to shut down all apps which allow it’s users in defecting to the Google+ “dark side”. It’s crazy how Facebook have taken it upon themselves to decide what it is that users of its service can do with THEIR own data! What the Zuck is that all about mother Zuckers?

The latest casualty to experience Facebook-style sanctions is Google+ Exodus.

Jack Carter and Albert Nichols are the creators of Google+ Exodus, which was supposed to make your migration away from Facebook easier by alerting your Facebook friends, and which was inspired by Mohammed Mansour’s Facebook Friend Exporter and Open-Xchange’s ox.io service.

This is how Google+ Exodus described their service:

When you use Exodus, all of your friends with Facebook Email set up (the ones with profile URLs like “facebook.com/username”) will get an invite to Google+. It will appear in the “Other” subsection of the Messages page. It won’t bother them by showing up in the notifications bar. If more than one of your friends uses Exodus, the messages will appear in the same thread, rather than clogging your inbox.

Google+ Exodus claimed to have over 10,000 hits over one day which resulted in the closure of the door which allowed them access to your Facebook friends and alerting your friends of your Google+ profile.

Check out the message below which you’re greeted with when visiting the Google+ Exodus website:

"Facebook caught us." say Google+ Exodus

RIP Google+ Exodushowever, I have no doubt that there will be several similar services popping up on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future!
