PEOPLE. Stop comparing Facebook to Google+. And if this is a ghost town why does a new message show up on my street every 15 seconds? Oh, yeah, the mainstream media is threatened by Google+.

What am I talking about? The Wall Street Journal says the "Minuses are adding up at Google+" http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204653604577249341403742390.html?mod=wsj_share_goog

Ouch.

That said, I celebrate this. Listen, how many of you would love to spend time at the TED conference? Total attendance? 1,500. It's a ghost town.

Or, how many would like to go to the World Series? I did that once. 40,000 in attendance. Ghost town.

Or how many would like to see the Knicks? 30,000 in attendance. A ghost town.

Truth is ghost towns are the best place to spend our time. Think about it? Is the best restaurant in town the hole in the wall that no one knows about yet or is it the big chain where everyone goes (like McDonalds)?

I have been very fortunate to have many of the world's best experiences with people as varied as +Jim Long (cameraman for NBC in the White House) to hanging out with Neil Young with +Marc Benioff (CEO of Salesforce.com).

Yet I enjoy coming here more than going to Twitter or Facebook or other social networks. Why? The audience might be smaller (it's not, actually, according to my blog's traffic logs) but it's more fun than the others because of the engagement here. Just read my other posts from earlier today and see the quality of the discussion.

When you read stuff like this ask yourself "why does the journalist believe this?"

It is true that Facebook has more people and more addiction. I told you that would be the case the first month Google+ was around: http://scobleizer.com/2011/07/01/why-yo-momma-wont-use-google-and-why-that-thrills-me-to-no-end/ Lots of you argued with me.

I was right and this has become a great place to come even though my wife still won't join in here.
