Let's frantically reshare and reshare this and prove Austin wrong!!!!
Austin Frakt originally shared:
 
* The Google+ Problem (for me) *

Same problem as Facebook. I just don't have time to scroll through lots of content shared by others to find something good.

Twitter has the advantage that tweets are short, relatively filterable, and good stuff gets RT'd a lot so you notice. Note how different this is than +1 on G+ or liking on Fb. Neither of those create a duplicate copy in my stream or make it more likely I'll see or read what is judged important.

Blogs have the advantage that certain bloggers do the curation work.

Unless G+ solves this important problem (to me), it will fail (for me).

I think g+ is a bit different from Twitter in its scope, it's more about sharing privately than publicly and is not too much about sharing a lot of stuff but just what's matter... using g+ like this seems leveraging well on its structure, while if you use it in a twitter style it becomes a bit messy, anyway at present is possible a fine grain tuning of how much "news" from any circle you can see on your home-stream. So, i.e. you can have a couple of circle for sheer online acquaintances, mute those circles from your main stream and just check at them when you have time/wish to do that.
Also I think if Google will implement a better graphic tool for formatting posts it could just merge blogger and g+, for example it could be that you chose how you want to edit your g+ posts, in a enhanced way like in blogger or just post it out as it is... that's could be an evolution, at present there's just little integration between blogger and g+
