Bob, two months on from your original post, what do you think now? I ask because I jumped on to Google Plus just after reading yours but haven't had a chance to nurture it much with driving a Volt around the country for Drive for Innovation. My gut tells me that Google + is alluring to our audience for various reasons, but I'm curious to see how you're making out with it. Cheers, Brian

Facebook is a security nightmare, but the majority of the users overlook this because of the convenience of keeping in touch with the hundreds of friends that they barely know in the first place. Facebook lost all credibility when it allowed corporations to be your friend. In my lifetime, the only time a business wanted to be my friend was when they were trying to sell me something. They don't care that my dog pee'd on the carpet or that I'm in a relationship or of the photos of my last vacation. The next time you see a commercial on tv, I can guarantee it'll have a link to their corporate facebook webpage. It's a sad commentary of today's society. Hopefully Google + has addressed this and will become a true social media and not some marketting goldmine.

The best online comment I saw about + concerned the process of dividing your friends into Circles: "Remember that Dante divided people into circles."

This time it seems to be more hopeful that Buzz.

Overall I agree that Google has tried to be a good citizen. To some degree the Internet can be self-policing; lose the trust of your customers (viewers, whatever) and they can move on to the next big thing rather fast. I'm still taking my time with + and treading lightly. Thanks, for the kind comment.

Bob, nice board and post and thanks for taking the time to do it. I've just begun to pay attention to Plus 1 so to have your take on it makes me realize i should pay attention a little bit more. EE Wiz's take on FB is spot on. Facebook is the company you love to hate. Google, which arguably has access to far more personal data, hasn't yet engendered that feeling among the public. Let's hope it stays that way. I like Google.

Another difference is that anything you upload to Facebook, even photos, becomes the property of Facebook. Google makes it clear, in simple language, that you retain of your rights to your stuff.

The privacy control settings in Facebook is just ridiculous. If you comment on one of your friend's wall/post , All your other friends(who are not friends with the 1st guy) can see the comments. And there is no way you can disable this :) Yes there is room for +. I hope Google give a tough time for FB and force FB to take user privacy seriously.
