    I think I have a BetaMax tape or HD-DVD explaining this very same idea.Report

    I read my G+ feed regularly, but the critical mass just isn’t there for me to duplicate what little posting I do in both places, 90% of which are photo updates of baby girl and therefore primarily of interest to the family, none of whom have made the leap to G+.

    While we’re being cranks about Google products, am I the only one cheesed off about the impending end of iGoogle without any suitable replacement?Report

      I’m considering blackmailing family and friends… “If you want to see pictures of Lain, you will use G+” (mostly because G+ makes putting pictures on there so easily.)

      Yes! iGoogle was weak, but it was there. There is no reason why they shouldn’t have something strong right now.Report

      You are not alone. I finally have all my gadgets set just the way I like, and they end-of-life itReport

    Can you set Google+ to automatically unfriend people who vote the wrong way?Report

    I endorse this post, but my family won’t leave Facebook.

    I despise Facebook and only post pictures there because they demand it. I’ve tried posting work stuff there, and even League posts, but I don’t think they get much response, and I don’t like how Facebook handles sharing anyway.Report

    I’m an inveterate G+ user. Never liked Facebook. I have an identity under an alias, to keep up with my g/f who does use Facebook. A lot.

    G+ is organised in ways Facebook just can’t match.Report

  6. I’m sorry. I’ll try to do better.Report

    The lack of APIs is a deal breaker (posting social media content is part of my job). And of the 100 or so people I have in circles, three post anything at all.Report

    I love most things about G+ and I was a big cheerleader at the start. It was very hard to stay active with it considering the lack-of-use.

    With using Hangouts for Leaguecasts I am thinking I need to give it a second go. I just have to figure out what that would look like. I mostly use FB for twitter-like posts when I’m trying to kill a few minutes or for sharing pictures.Report

  9. I’d happily go to G+ if everyone else would. It’s a nicer UI and user experience.Report
