Well, this is disturbing. I wonder if it's accurate?

- I believe the g+ offerings are really well laid-out and useful just as they are now. To fragment them into separate services and allow them to grow in different directions seems unwise. But, I should add that I was only introduced to some of the more useful features of Docs and Hangouts in December 2013 while working an I.T. contract position supporting 4,000 plus franchise owners across the U.S.
G+ is more clean looking and definitely less cluttered than Facebook.Mar 4, 2015
- Thank you for letting us know that reorganizing doesn't mean breaking apart; since, the biggest downfall of Google is the lack of communication between products. For example, simply making it easy to merge Google calendar into g+ profiles would pull Fb users into g+ land like flies to honey. (Facebook calendar usage is a joke and scheduling one's day is essential to social interaction.)Mar 6, 2015
- P.S. I have to say... Google calendar is THE best internet program/app/development I have ever seen: totally user friendly, idiot proof to use, extremely customizable. Thanks to whomever created that one.Mar 6, 2015
- , those of us who use Google Plus find it invaluable, and so far haven't seen any signs of it "breaking up."Apr 4, 2015
- You make interesting points,. Do you have a source for the statement that Google pays 15 times more per active user than Facebook does? It's okay if you don't and were just trying to make a point.Apr 4, 2015
- , to be honest I've not taken the time to personally research the in and outs of Google Plus's viability deeply, so you very well may be right. Three are those I know whom I respect who have taken the time, and who believe as I that Google Plus is not so much a platform as a layer, and given that , all the pieces fit together.
It would be interested in revisiting this topic in a year. In the meantime, I'm loving that for the most part those on The PLUS are not anonymous. This lends itself to more genuine relationship building, imho.
I like that posts (the one's I'm aware of, at least) tend to be long form, with thoughtful and intelligent conversation (such as this one).
I also understand how the content marketing that Google promotes benefits those (including me) who use search by delivering a superior search experience ... and that there's a direct correlation between that and how much money Google makes.
Regardless of the organizational chart, I see all the pieces as working together, allowing for unprecedented citizen communications and collaboration capabilities. I believe this disruptive technology has the potential to change the world and for the better, and that's what I like most about Google, and Google Plus.
Looking forward to re-engaging with you in 2016, and sincerely hope it's on The PLUS. :)Apr 4, 2015
