The Plus side of Google+

The Plus side of Google+

Just another flash in the pan? Or a Game changer?

Google+ is quite the breath of fresh air, and one that makes so much sense in a world of social interaction. In my most humble opinon, it’s everything that Facebook should have been and everything that Twitter isn’t.

To me, its a hybrid of social networks and takes the best of breeds from networks like Facebook and Twitter where people can interact with people, search results, brands and anything else that doesnt have to follow them back in order for interaction to exist.

I am slowly seeing the bigger picture with G+ and starting with Gmail interactivity, the integration thats possible with G+ is what is going to set the pace for the future of social networks

The growth has been phenomenal with so many people on the uptake and its quite refreshing to read and interact with people that have been in my “Google circles” long prior to Google+.

I’ve been a Gmail user since the beginning and over the years I have made contacts, deal, friends, leads and aquaintances that have long since been buried in my contacts only to resurface now and G+ is allowing me to rekindle some of those professional relationships in a way that Facebook could never.

After the failures of Wave and Buzz, many would have thought that Google would have given up on the social race but the social space is still growing, while more and more brands are realizing the importance of social interaction so the niche is booming while still in its infancy and Google isn’t the type of company to take defeat and back off, instead they went away, revised a plan and came back stronger than ever.

MySpace was revolutionary, Facebook was evolutionary and Google+ is a game changer.

I’m not saying that Facebook and Twitter are going to die a MySpace death, but Google+ will definitely hurt them, and judging by the rapid uptake already, it seems as though the inevitable is going to happen sooner rather than later.

That being said, there is one fatal flaw which I would love if Google find a way around this, what about those people who have more than 1 Gmail account? For someone like myself who has used multiple Gmail accounts for various reasons, this means that my contacts are split across 2 Google+, but I only want to use one. Sure I can export my contacts from one and import to the other but that doesn’t help me merge the 2 accounts seamlessly when people are adding one account to their circles which is a lesser used account.

Merging of accounts is on my wish list for Christmas but until then, I’m happy tinkering around with my new found toy.
