Dear Google+

This is for you. We've heard lots of promises and statements about this UI before. In the +Vic Gundotra era, I believed them. I saw changes happening. But that was a long time ago, in the world of social.

Seriously, I'm asking you straight up now, +Dave Besbris: is this experiment going to continue, or are our days numbered here?

I ask as I've always been a thorn in the side of G+, and because I've always loved what this Grand Experiment represented. But I wonder often lately: I wonder if promises will be fulfilled; I wonder at the slow rate or change and improvements. I wonder if true commitment is still here? You and some team members told me a while back to be patient, that changes we're coming. But I haven't seen them, not then, and not in 2015.

I LOVE G+ and always have. I only bitch and kvetch because I want it to be so much better. But I'm alarmed at the slow rate of improvements and changes. I'm alarmed that business pages still feel like we're looking at a 1995 internet page. I truly wonder if Google is still invested in making this a long-term project.

So -- the ball's in your court. I was here on Day 1 and I have yet to see honest proof that that dedication still exists here. I've yet to see any of the Top 500 Plussers pulled in to give their guidance and critiques to the G+ hierarchy. I've yet to see a definitive response from you, Dave, and your teams, with people like +Yonatan Zunger, that clearly states in one voice: we're here for the long haul.

Jesus, you can at least give us that, as a reward for our longtime loyalty. Think about it, will you? There is a LOT of anxiety over this platform now, and it's been strong and vocal since you took over. Thanks for listening.

"Of some calamity we can have no relief but from God alone; and what would men do, in such a case if it were not for God? It is only from the belief of the goodness and wisdom of a Supreme Being, that our calamities can be borne in the manner which becomes a man."
