Google Plus Ghost Town? My Open Letter to The Misguided Reporters

Know what the common theme is between all these “ghost town posts”? No interviews. No named sources. Lots of reporters who never used it. A quick search usually shows that the reporter has not used Google+ themselves. Likely to not even post the article they just wrote about the platform. In fact most have less than 20 people circled and more often than not... have never even posted. Awesome. Good Reporters generally go out and interview people who are involved with something before they write a story, if they themselves don’t have first had experience. This is fringe opinion piece media. Yet tons of these garbage articles keep getting posted on major tech publications presenting like its the facts.

I figured it was time I wrote a letter to these reporters. Please media… realize that I have tried to reach out and talk to many of you, do interviews, and help you get these points, but too many times you tell me “your company doesn’t care about writing about the positive sides of Google+” or that “other stories are more important than G+ success”. Yet whenever anything could possibly be seen as negative about G+, all of your websites light up with a million ghost town posts. It’s time the users of G+ spoke out…  I’ll start. Here are my thoughts for you.

Dear Reporters Who Can’t Be Bothered To Learn About Google+ Before Writing Your Ridiculous Articles About It;

I know this is going to be hard for some of you. You have been a good tech writer, involved in social media probably for awhile, and spent time building up your Facebook account and Twitter profile. When Google+ came along, many of your company Tech websites had already done things like integrate Facebook comments or sometimes heck, even invest in Facebook themselves! You certainly didn’t have time to get involved in another social network, and come on.. “Google has never got social”. Your mom isn’t there. Google+ is obviously a ghost town.  Right?

Wrong.

Read the whole thing here:

And please share this one Far and wide, on every social network you have. Yeah. I'm asking.

Hey hey hey - running a galactic empire, having family issues, not to mention no father in your life except the one you killed... a sith lord needs some stress relief.  The height of the grass is one thing he can keep control over that doesn't slip through his fingers.

Story
Tagline
Creator of The Conservative Union community on G+, Book Worm, Extrovert, Tea Junkie...
Introduction
Just a guy, taking one day at a time. I have a beautiful,loving Wife and incredible kids that keep me on my toes. I enjoy reading: historical, science fiction, mysteries. I am a complete Jonathan Kellerman nut, absorbing his books in a weekend sitting.

I am a Conservative Constitutionalist, and the owner of The Conservative Union, the largest Conservative Community of G+. Socrates said it best: "To find yourself, think for yourself". 

I've come from a dark place in these last few years, these chapters in my life, to a place with fewer shadows, and I like it here. I still have my Dark Humor, and my sarcastic wit, but as time has gone by, I have learned to enjoy the sweet & sour...

 As the Marquis de Sade said; "Imperious,choleric,irascible, extreme in everything,with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen;there you have me in a nutshell; kill me or take me as I am,for I shall not change."

Bragging rights
I have the best family. Ever.
