G+ /// Google + /// Google Plus

Postby k1net1k on Sun Sep 11, 2011 8:01 pm

I'm Going to put together a Google+ group for people related to ElysianShadows
(failing that, I will add you to my ES circle)

New Elysian Shadows page on G+
https://plus.google.com/114887883766263074897#114887883766263074897/posts


Edit, or if you dont have google+ and want an invite just click this link for an invite. 147 left. https://plus.google.com/i/zew7lIfbb54:FHH3bjSIvs4
Edit: you dont need to be invited anymore

Aslo add a "spark" for Elysian Shadows. I'm trying to get that keyword trending :) I think how it works is anytime someone mentions ES it will add it to the stream.
Edit: Sparks are now called searches

I will post a link here sometime soon when I work out how to link a public group (or whatever the hell its called on there)
Yeah google+ has 'hangouts', which are basically a webcam/microphone conference room.
Im looking or hoping for some way to share my circle of ES people other than this.

Edit: I hear google is working on a feature called "shared Circles" when this happens i will share the Elysian Shadows circle.

Edit: http://developers.google.com/+/hangouts/ this also looks promising :)



Nice to see that google is taking on a direct feedback from here

Good idea, by the way, will be a cool way to connect with other programmers :)

I better get some sort of admin position or something in this group... Otherwise I ain't posting sneak peaks of upcoming dev videos, screenshots, and shit.

There aren't any groups on Google+ at the moment, but there are rumors of plans to add such a feature in the future. I think the problem with Google's fancy ideas is the way they release them in closed betas and take years to add even the simplest of features. Sure it eases testing a shit ton, but nobody wants to use half a product. They have enough employees to easily do internal testing then release something like Google+ when it's "complete" adding features as they're requested by users and as seen fit. This is the reason Facebook succeeded.

IMHO, G+ is going nowhere and Facebook is here to stay for some time. There were a shit ton of reasons for the majority of users to switch over from MySpace to Facebook, but I just don't see any advantage of G+ over Facebook.

advantages
1) no ads (yet ;) )
2) no constant "Person liked this" spam
3) circles allow you to filter what you want to see (and also who to post to) By default that is, you dont need to make custom groups
4) hangouts essentially do what most people use skype for
5) google ceo's dont think his users are "fuckheads"

as for the going nowhere

You do realize that the majority of the ads on the internet are sponsored by Google?
k1net1k wrote:2) no constant "Person liked this" spam

Nope, just +1's

By default being the only major difference here. I'm actually a fan of this particular idea and how it's implemented.
k1net1k wrote:4) hangouts essentially do what most people use skype for

I also don't mind this idea, although I haven't tried it yet.

The media will tell you anything to get your attention.

A shit ton of people signed up really fast.. so what? Google+ still only has ~2% of the total users of Facebook. Only time can tell us how many will join and use the product.

alright im not gonna try and argue the fact, because you are right.
I like google + way more than facebook and twitter combined. and it seems like a lot of others are in the same boat.

I feel G+ has more potential and I enjoy it much more than Facebook, but that's just me. ;)
There is some small API stuff now, check it out.

I like the interface much more, and wouldn't mind switching to G+ if the tides turn that way. I was only stating my conceptions on general acceptance of the product. Twitter is just well.. pointless. Lol.
