Google+ mobbed

Google+ was mobbed with visitors after the social network opened its doors to the public last week, industry tracker Experian Hitwise reported on Monday.

I`ve obviously added myself on there. I try and use all the social pages to promote my business I`m "trying" to get started. I don`t see how people can work, have a relationship, raise kids and be social on all the social platforms...:wtf:

As a platform it is a LOT better than anything FB has been able to produce.

The problem for G+ is that there is a world full of people who don't have the brain power to understand the difference between the two or even fathom the superiority of G+ when compared to Facebook.

I cancelled my FB account shortly after G+ was announced and I have no regrets because it has alerted me to the fact that most of my "friends" are too stupid to figure out where the smart people are hanging out! ;)

Current calculated estimates are that G+ is sitting at about 48 million users and will hit 50 mil shortly which is unprecedented growth.

Even when G+ does become BIG, I think adoption in SA will still be very slow, slower than in other countries.

Sadly I have to agree. South africans are luddites.

In the opinion of the guys registered on G+... Please can you take some things that are better on G+ than fb... I am considering cancelling fb, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be getting a G+ account...

I'm just curious as to what makes it so much better. Please enlighten me :)

I'm one of nearly 50 million who registered. I used it for a few minutes then really couldn't be bothered to go create a whole new network/circle, so logged off and haven't been back since. Maybe I just don't quite get what makes it so special yet but it really didn't catch much of my attention at all...

Very true. Only got 2 new people since the the opening. At least more people are becoming active.
Even during the invite phase I would tell people to try it out, but they just couldn't understand.

Well I can't directly compare Facebook to G+, since I never had Facebook. The main reason why I decided to join G+ was because of the circles feature (which facebook has now adopted). When I ask other people why G+, they say its clean, you know where you are and what you are doing.

If your using a hotmail/live or yahoo, then you probably deserve to stay on facebook. Live mail works but its slow and those visual adverts which show up on the side :sick:, don't even get me started on yahoo mail :sick::sick:.
Getting a Google account you get access to everything Google such as youtube, Gmail, G+, Google chat.

You have to start using it to understand, and by this I mean you need to get some people into your circles (people you know and people you just follow for the good content they produce). G+ is excellent at delivering news, encouraging meaningful conversation, and being everything between twitter and a full blown blog. Many social media gurus/bloggers have completely moved to G+ to replace their blogs.

That's just it, G+ can't be even remotely useful if you don't circle/follow people.
