Apparently I'm using Google+ again.

Finally cracked and built myself a free, simple website so that I'm all in one place. Check it out! http://www.wix.com/jschu4138/jaredschulman

What sort of "you" are you marketing on social media platforms?

I think what really troubles me about the direction that Facebook is going is that it's becoming more and more limited in ease of use. It used to be that I could see all of my friends who were online, and all of my friends' posts showed up in my real-time newsfeed. 1) Facebook changed the newsfeed so that the friends you interact with more show up more frequently. 2) Facebook changed chat so that you only see people you've interacted with recently or frequently, plus select others. 3) Facebook added a giant chunk of Top News stories above my beloved, although admitted flawed post-change #1, real-time newsfeed.
Here's my beef with that. I, unlike most people, it seems like, only friend people on Facebook whom I actually know, like, and trust. Therefore, I actually WANT to be able to stay up to date with how they're doing.
So change 1) Facebook cuts me off from easily keeping in touch with friends I don't talk to as often now that we're at different schools or in different circles of friends, and makes me hunt them down on my friends list. Why? If anything, put the friends I'm in touch with LEAST on my newsfeed so that I stay in touch with them more! 2) Now if I want to talk with a friend I haven't communicated with in a while, I have to go to their profile and click to chat with them (or if even just to see if they're online), or send them a message? That's not helpful. 3) Call me pretentious, but the racist/sexist/insensitive joke that one of my friends posted and 25 people liked or commented on? That's not the sort of thing I want inundating my news feed. Let it go by once when it's posted, and if it's anything I want a part of, I'll probably comment about it and I'll get notifications about it then.
It just seems to me that these three small changes are entirely counter-intuitive to Facebook wanting to make things easy and accessible for their users.
I send out this message in a bottle via Google+ in hopes that other will hear my call and flock to this promised land of greener pastures and simpler functions.

Peace out.

Thaaaaanks, Google. All I want is a YouTube account and now I HAVE to integrate it with my Google+ account? I don't want them connected. At all.

Those who are willing to do what others are not today will be able to do what others cannot tomorrow.

For as much as I'm on gmail, google calendar, and google docs, I still almost NEVER check my G+ account.

Stoked to see that people are still using Google+. Facebook just threw in another new change, so I'm expecting temporary higher traffic here.
