I think there's some truth to how out of touch Darth Vader and Kylo Ren were with the general workforce. They were always on their own mission, serving a specific agenda, and all the storm troopers, captains and admirals were just sort of there, occasionally useful, but mostly not.
Since then G+ has gone through an iteration or 3, and while it has always been a bit buggy with some questionable ux, it seems to be at at an all time low for me, just based on my usage. Things now take more clicks, there are very obvious bugs that aren't being fixed, and overall I'm seeing fewer and fewer reasons to use it. It doesn't look as good, either... That bar at the bottom seems so 3 years ago.
Some big part of it is probably that I don't care much about Ingress anymore, and that was a good percentage of my feed, but overall there seem to be only a few posts to care about anymore, and finding them seems like a chore.
Also it seems like any time I post here I'm bitching about some thing or another. I guess G+ just isn't bringing out the best of me these days.
I have to be honest, so far I have seen zero premium content from Red. I don't even know how to find it. I can't find it on YouTube, and doing a Google search for it leaves you with blog posts from Google announcing Red, and blog posts by bloggers telling you about how evil Red is. But no links to content.
We've had Red for months now, as part of a Google Music subscription, and it boggles my mind why anyone would pay for this. I think it's supposed to be ad free, but that's not something I've noticed. Background playback on my device is more annoying than useful.
So, help a guy out and send me some links to cool content, please. I can't be watching quality shows on Netflix and Amazon alone!
