The new-car smell of Google+ is wearing off for me, here's why (and why average people will resist moving onto Google+).

- Some of these things you talk about Robert might be better left for google + for business because I dont see the "average" person trying to get that much utility out of the site, I see them mostly just trying to be social.Jul 7, 2011
- I started reading the post intending on disagreeing but I can't. Truth is, if you create a circle of subject matter experts hoping to only see information regarding that subject, that won't happen unless they have you in a specific circle and only share information relevant to that circle or make those relevant posts public. With that being said, Facebook also lacks noise control so I don't see this as a real issue at this time.Jul 9, 2011
- I think this could be solved to greater or lesser degree if Sparks was more comprehensive and some sort of impromptu, shared tagging system was implemented.Jul 10, 2011
- I am cheekily gong to blame this on you!
Why, because in the beginning you indicated that engagement came from sharing content publicly. I myself changed my posting behavior with this in mind.
Now that this has happened and people are seeing engagement, they are sharing everything publicly (engagement is addictive).
Thus the reason for LOLcats in the VC circles.
I hope this will abate as time passes, however, as this would mitigate many of the filtering issues that we have.
A good example of post filtering is the implementation of the G+ movie club.
Thus I have a circle of people who have indicated to me that they want to receive posts about "performance art". I will probably post the more generic pieces to public and the more specific pieces to the inner circle. Thus the engagement that I hope to get will be relevant.
Your thoughts? Could this be user error? :-)Oct 9, 2011
- is all about being a "universal social bus" we need to get as much information, ie, "noise" on the bus. Culling out useful information I am interested in from a bus should be pretty trivial to "fix", so I am not worried. Google first has to get everybody on the bus, if you will, then you can start filtering that bus for information.Nov 9, 2011
