  • The problem with Facebook

    Interesting, and very true IMHO. Google+ is much better for most of what I want to do now.

      So you're saying that Google+ is the best social media that people don't use?
      Brb watching.

      I heard of the pay to promote feature when it was first being brought in, I didn't know what the implications would be. So it looks like facebook will get progressively more crap, and hopefully go the way of Myspace etc.

        Google+ isn't a Facebook substitute, but it's better social media. It isn't intended for sharing family photos. It only doesn't make sense if you use Facebook as the point of comparison.

          sounds like an ad for promoting Google+ over facebook.


          >>> What if we could have social media without using our names (have usernames instead) and without advertising or filtering?

          eg. Diaspora

            There must be at least 5 or 6 people on Google+ now so it is gaining popularity.
            Spiral out, keep going...

              If you have a website and want better Google rankings, site links and Google Places to work properly, then a Google+ account linked to authorship, or a Google+ Page linked to publisher is a must do. Just sayin'

                People care too much about social media.

                The guy in the video shits me, as though Facebook owes him something? Its a free service you cunt, sorry it isn't perfect for you.

                    I've cancelled my + account and keep hitting the "skip" option whenever YouTube wants me to use my real name.

                        The problem is, Facebook is starting to feel that way as if we owe it something. Facebook is only as valuable as the people logging on. The minute the people leave it's worthless (see MySpace)

                        I watched the video this morning, it was pretty interesting. I find the filtering works ok. Just learn to manipulate it by taking the effort to push like on the people you want to hear from when you see it as a valid status or post. My news feed runs pretty much the people I want to see. All the other friends on their I have are those from my past I rarely hear from or see anyway or I feel to rude to delete.
