So is "circling" the Google+ equivalent of following or friending?

I love reading this old Google Buzz review from Jason Calacanis, helps put this in perspective:

2/10/2010 via http://calacanis.com/2010/02/10/breaking-google-buzz-is-brilliant-facebook-just-lost-half-its-value/


From: Jason Calacanis
Date: Wed, Feb 10, 2010 at 1:42 PM
Subject: BREAKING: Google Buzz is brilliant, Facebook just lost half its value.

BREAKING: Google Buzz is brilliant. Like ground-breaking,
game-changing brilliant.

My 30 second review of Google Buzz:

1. Google Buzz 1.0 is better than Facebook after six or seven years.

2. Facebook’s history is one filled with stealing other people’s
innovations and doing them better (i.e. Zuckerberg has stolen every
idea Evan Williams and the Twitter team have released). How ironic now
that Google has out “Facebooked” Facebook. Google

3. Google has excellent privacy record and Facebook is a disaster.
Most folks do not trust Zuckerberg and Facebook any more because of
their privacy record (filled with lawsuits) and because they steal
every good idea they see (i.e. Twitter’s innovations and FourSquare’s
checking in).

4. Google Buzz auto generates your network–this is MUCH better
process than Facebook’s.

5. Google Buzz is way faster than the sluggish Facebook–this is a
HUGE advantage.

6. Google Buzz puts relies and updates into your GMAIL as
threads–this is BRILLIANT and a HUGE advantage.

Facebook is going to see their traffic get cut in half by Google Buzz.

This really is game over for Facebook because you know Microsoft and
Aol are going to copy Google Buzz as quick as they can. In fact, Aol
would have a HUGE renaissance if they simply knocked off Google Buzz’s
exact feature set. You would than have a reason to keep your @aol
email address.

This could actually derail the Facebook IPO. It’s that serious.
Facebook usage is going to plummet in the next year or two because of
this. There really is no reason for non-game playing people who use
GMAIL to log into Facebook.

If Google Ads social gaming to Google Buzz Facebook is 2012′s Pointcast.

Wow…. this is just stunning.

OK, questions to the smart folks on the list:

1. Have you used Google Buzz?
2. How is Google Buzz better than Facebook?
3. What advantages does Google Buzz have over Facebook?
4. What advantages does Facebook have over Google?
5. Did you see this coming?
6. What do you attribute Google’s recent string of AMAZING products
including: Chrome, Android, Nexus One and Buzz?

all the best,

Jason

So, anyway, some people misunderstood my post asking if "circling" is the Google+ equivalent of following or friending. I meant (half-jokingly) is that what we're calling it here...

The generic term, "christening," works for all sites ;)

Reposting this publicly


In response to +Jason Calacanis who tweeted:

"LOVE Twitter BUT not allowing longer comments is EPIC mistake. I've told @jack @ev @biz @dickc they have to fix NOW.@google+ is better."

http://twitter.com/Jason/statuses/90646066256547841

Twitter does not need to extend the number of characters you can post. The reason why Twitter is so useful is because it forces people to be efficient and concise. Twitter would be unusable as a information device if people were allowed to bloviate as they do here. I like the discussion here because that is the implicit use case here. The implicit use case of Twitter is much different and useful for what Twitter is meant to be.

Jason, stop trying to turn Twitter into what it is not and what it should not be. The greatest value of Twitter is being able to quickly and efficiently transmit information and to be able to view that information in a quick and efficient way.

Google+ does fill a need, the need for a longer response like this. Twitter fills a different need, which is to be the ambient news wire, which in order to be useful needs to be short and actionable.

The technical reason why it is limited to 140 characters is the same reason why text messages are limited to the same amount of characters per message on the data channel to send SMS messages. The other characters are used for header and trailer information and for a CRC checks.

Very cool.

Great moment at U2 show last night. As Bono is leaving he noticed a fan holding a sign asking to play a song for his wife. The man happens to be blind and he proceeds to play a heartfelt rendition of "All I Want Is You" with the entire band.

Afterwards, well.....you'll just have to watch.
