Quick question: Have you quit Facebook because of Google Plus? If so, I'd like love to hear your rationale for the switch. Feedback welcome in the comments or to me at @emikolawole-- Thanks!

- No, it would be too premature for me. I have social connections on Facebook that aren't replicated by G+ and I'm not sure if they ever will be. But, the integration with my Gmail is so great, that further enhancements could well put me over the edge.Jul 18, 2011
- Both interesting points. Thanks! I've known only a handful of people who have left Facebook cold turkey. It's definitely difficult. Do you know of friends who are leaving even if you won't? Gilles, I know your folks are reluctant to leave. But, as I've gotten older, I've noticed people have been peeling off or stepping back in terms of the amount of information they contribute.Jul 18, 2011
- One important point I would add: G+ does local better. I realized this when I began to use the Android app. I'm not sure why Google has not carried the "nearby" option to the browser experience. When it does, I think it could be a significant game changer.Jul 18, 2011
- No, but I'm fantasizing about it. Need the critical mass first, but I'm increasingly confident that it will come.Jul 18, 2011
- Think google+ is more business friendly - i am going to keep facebook for friends n familyJul 19, 2011
- I just read your post on http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/facebook-why-cant-i-quit-you/2011/07/20/gIQANLkVVI_story.html, I quit facebook back in April or May.
The best part about quitting that is when someone communicates to me, you quit facebook. I say yeah, but you have my number/e-mail it is fine.Jul 24, 2011
