Ignorance Must Be Really Bliss
I don't know why but articles like this, which are all over social networks, piss me off. Why should I get so worked up?
I'll tell you why: because ignorance and laziness don't make a good article . The fact that any dipshit can post news that is treated as fact just upsets me.
By the same logic everyone uses to say Google+ is dead I can say Facebook is dead. When I go to Facebook I see updates from only a few people peppered by a whole bunch of ads. The activity is very low.
Why? Simply because I have not put in the time to make the social network as vibrant as it could be. For Google+ I put in that time and effort and while I may not use it as much as before, I still reap the benefits of my effort by finding a news stream packed with diverse updates, posts, shares, etc.
Instead of shouting the demise of Google+ from every rooftop, these social media experts should just admit they have not put in the effort they have for their other (preferred) social networks and leave us alone.
