greetings +Vic Gundotra
Quite glad to hear that g+ has grown to 90 million. It is a big number but we still have bigger numbers upa ahead in future. ;)
Congrats to the whole team
who have been adding numerous features to g+ to make it better and better. Massive effort indeed!!
especially the record video through webcam for video blog posting is delicious.
everyday i'm eager to know whats the new additions to g+ like getting new toys!! :)
PS : any idea on the total number of features in g+ till now?
and i'd like to see yummy & bigger updates soon. ;)+Carlos Balderas
: the issue is several people want g+ to be have the same usage stats and the same social graph as they get on FB (which it has after 7 years!!) and since they dont get it, they reject g+. this is silly.
many are hankering after the active usage so much that larry had to give the usage with google products and not only g+.
It would not be great as compared to FB obviously and journalists will throw even more mud at the network saying the active usage is too low. In 8 months g+ has made great inroads despite heavy changes from FB which is an achievement in itself.
Personally i think the active usage is from minimum of 20% to a max of 40%, which is quite good imho for a new social network. :)
People who are interested in active usage, please check how well FB and twitter did in their first year. ;)
building a social network is not a simple walk with an incumbent around. ;)
I feel with more and more features and better integration with google services, that g+ will be become an important network in future. :)
It is not easy but it is possible and if google can sustain what they are doing with g+ , its quite possible that we have a valid network in our hands.+Blake Ethridge
: extended family
is nice term. yes , we get to know and connect to the g+ in a personal way. :)+Roberto Velasquez
: g+ team (including vivek and brad) are doing things which make this place in every aspect better than FB especially in compared to privacy. to go against FB, they have to be meticulous and it will be challenging.
so i'm sure till they threaten FB , g+ will stay this cool way. But after that, i also do hope that they maintain clean feel and more importantly give control to users
i'm sure there will be ads but g+ can do it better than FB. ;)+David Perez
: great work on getting your family to g+. :)
I also send things to people to get their attention over to g+. ;)
Still, g+ has to bring in some biggie features to truly attract the usual FB person.
