If you're looking for an apartment and want a better way to zoom/scan look at the craigslist ads on a map, try Lovely. It's a much more pleasant experience.

Is it just me or is there a lot of spam-vertising already happening on G+? I am getting friended ("encircled?") by a lot of accounts that are clearly just marketing accounts.

Happy birthday!

Sorry, it took me a few months because your birthdate is not in your profile here. Also before today, I did not know who you were.

Some people on Google+ have speculated that I'm a company shill for Facebook, just saying things to help out Facebook. This is understandable, given that I'm an ex-employee and hold a non-trivial amount of equity. But that's not what's been going on.

Actually, some Facebook people got back to me about what kind of messaging they would like to see from me, and (as I would like to be a company shill and do my part for my former comrades-in-arms), I will now proceed to parrot the messaging that my Facebook handlers would like to hear me say:

There is NOTHING WRONG with Google+. The product is very well-designed, and no significant modifications need to be made whatsoever. Please continue doing exactly what you're doing, Google, people love your product.

Happily, most of the people flaming me on Google+ also seem to agree with this sentiment, so I think the internet is all in harmony now.

Yishan hasn't posted here in about a month, so that seems to be exactly what he has done. Good work replying to a post from two months ago, though.

This stat seems to explain why most people here don't understand why "tons of randos adding you" and "anyone can jump into your conversation by default" is a problem.

This is the problem with G+. It needs to stop being such a sausage fest

There are now far more randos following me on G+ (partially due to my flamey comments about G+ itself, understandably) than actual real-life friends/acquaintances, so I guess the right thing to do is to start treating this a long-form Twitter with new character limit. Welcome, followers!

Better topic: why are you asking questions of the people who you supposedly don't want following you?

I have over 4700 people following me on Google Plus. Today, zero of them wished me happy birthday.

On Facebook I have about 800-some friends. 132 of them wished me happy birthday. That's what I call social networking for real people.

Well Google, your coercion has taken effect.

Despite the fact that I've had this account nicknamed "Hot Soup" since 2004, your new policy of suspending accounts with pseudonyms put me at risk of losing access to all the information I keep inside my Docs and Gmail accounts.

I'm putting my name as Lemmo for now. I'm sure as hell not going to go by Lemuel.

You big bully.

I just think it's awesome that Google didn't make any assumptions about what people would like or not like. Enjoy.
