Google Fuss

17 Jul

So today I joined Google+.

I’m usually really excited to join a new venture in the wonderful world of digital, but after being so badly let down after my excitement for Google Wave, Google Buzz, etc. I’m a bit standoffish about this one. Google do some things brilliantly (search, mail, docs) and they should spend money, time and effort polishing the stuff that they’re great at instead of bandwagon hopping.

I love Google Docs and think it has a huge potential to completely negate the need for any sort of office package, but at the minute it’s still a bit buggy and lacks a lot of features that they could easily add.

We shall see, though. I’ve got an open mind about Google+ for now.

What do you think?

    Google+ is excellent. Don’t think of it as being “like Facebook”, which most people are — in execution, it’s much more like a cross between Tumblr and Twitter. And check out this post for an interesting interpretation of what it might actually be all about.

      Thanks Pete! Nice bit of insight, there. I hope it works out a success, I just find it frustrating as it’s a closed Beta so the amount you can do is limited to the people involved in it. I like how it links to iCal, Docs, etc. We shall see…
