I've noticed that I've been using G+ less and less lately. This is partly because I've been using Twitter more and letting more professional connections creep into my Facebook, but also partly because of the updates to G+.
What G+ still does really well:
–Long form posts (like this one) are easy to write and are more readable due to the ability to add some formatting (bold and itallics)
–Photography. For whatever reason, photos on G+ just look really good to me. Disclaimer: I don't use instagram or other photo specific social media
–Finding people with similar really specific geeky interests who are excited about sharing their really specific geeky interests. This is what drew me to G+ in the first place (finding tea people), and partly it's what keeps me here.
Things that were good, but that Google screwed up:
–Searching. Until the most recent update, G+ was the only social media site that was easily searchable. Why they took this feature away, I'll never understand. I have to downgrade to the old version every time I want to search for a post. Ugh.
–Hangouts. Hangouts are still my favorite video chat software, although I use it less than I used to. With the new update they took away almost ALL the useful features that made this service unique.
I'll try to post things here still occasionally, but I'm more often on Twitter @aariqscott
