3 years of social reading and sharing, that's a Plus
It's hard to believe it's been three years since Google introduced +Google+
and I hopped onto this for a great journey. It has been a continual learning/development journey for me. Am here, because this is the platform for egalitarian people who elevate each other, inspire intelligently, communicate considerately and differ with dignity.
I never liked Facebook(those who know me, also know why) and twitter was equally not my type either. One was silly to me and other way too brief to actually write/share anything meaningful. I don't like companies that create limits/boundaries around us. So, when I got to know of G+ first time, I got completely excited. Google+ took all the best bits of other social networks, rolled them all into one and then topped it off with some yummy sauce of it's own. +Google+ Photos
editing and auto backup features alone make it a must have service and that is only a fraction of the whole thing. Google+ opened up a world to me that I honestly never thought possible. It it the epitome of a community striving for a global community, encouraging connection, communication, and the building of relationships.
There are many reasons, that bring me here, but the most interesting is Community. G+ communities let people with similar interests come together easily to share thoughts and ideas on subjects that interest them. This is probably the only platform that intrigues me to give more so as to receive more.
Also, I love Google+ because it is Google. If you want a perpetual social system, there is really only one choice. G+ gives you a complete integrated experience so whether you're on +YouTube
or +Google Drive
or Hangouts, all strings are tightly connected. Google+ is a perfect hybrid platform that allows me to be me and share both my personal and professional sides. All of this customized to my preference, what else a Geek would ask for.
Here's to the social network that changed my life. In the past 3 years I've gained new friendships, new experiences and people to admire and respect. On this platform, I've also found the most amazing audience I could have ever asked for my Project Glass community that now has more than 10000 users.
I am grateful to all the people who make my personal experience here on Google+ second to none. And to all the people who make me smile every time I see their profile picture come up in my stream. That's you my close friends.
But honestly, each one of these people play a major role in why I love this place so much. Only great things happen on the Plus. Happy third Birthday, Google+! #googleplus3 #happybirthdaygoogleplus #yearnandlearn
