Haven't decided whether Google+ is really worth messing with or not, but this militates toward not.

- I don't disagree w/ you Tom on the "confusing" part. But it's acknowledged to still be in beta. I've used the little "Send feedback" twice now..... don't know if they're making use of it to improve things. We'll see.. I may use it more.
If you didn't see my explanatory post at FB or the similar one here at G+, hope you'll take a look. I'm considering making it into a SelfSIP Focus article on the obstacle of anonymity for moving towards a society of full liberty and maximal freedom which is without government of course.Feb 21, 2012
- They do respond to some of the feedback and the updates are listed here:

- Kitty, Yes, I've read your Facebook post. I'm unclear on how Google + is superior on the points you cover, though. Also, I see issues of anonymity/pseudonymity as easily addressed as pricing/preferencing matters, and so as not a major obstacle (indeed, not an obstacle at all) to full liberty/maximal freedom.Feb 21, 2012
- The only point on which I am convinced that G+ is superior to FB is that my full ID and public posts are truly public, no account needed as far as I can determine to see those items. (Will be complaining to G+ that birth year is not showing & I want it to! Proud of my age!) This is definitely NOT the case w/ FB. When I get the article written (w/ Paul's excellent editing of course :), your comments to it will be welcome - we've added an email comment section to bottom of new items + of course the preferable MLYahoo group. A discussion (inline/interleaved) on the subject will be good.Feb 21, 2012
- Kitty, I'll have to look into the "public" aspect of Google+. I've just assumed that one had to be logged into a Google account to see the posts, but for all I know that may not be the case. I look forward to your article!Feb 21, 2012
- If you have any thoughts that might be good to include in this page, let me know. A lot of good libertarians spend a lot of time on social media, so we should make sure we're getting the most out of our time investment. http://wiki.mises.org/wiki/Essay:Facebook%27s_advantages_and_disadvantagesJan 6, 2014
