With Google's announcements to stop pushing people to switch to Google+ not to mention the lay off Google+ employees, I have decided to lay off Google+. Not that I posted here much anyway, but I will remain on the usual social channels: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

If a company with deep pockets like Google cannot figure out how to make Google+ function as a social sharing app there is no hope for it. And I encourage you to do the same.

Honestly, that would be like Apple trying to figure out how to socialize user's music songs and playlists. Uh, wait . . .

Later Google+

Story
Tagline
Mayor of Simpleton, father and hack golfer
Introduction
Born, raised and still living in the Bay Area. The Licata family came from Sicily via Hawaii, settled in San Francisco and was instrumental in developing the SF fishing industry and Fisherman's Wharf. Our family's restaurant in San Mateo — Vince's Italian & Seafood restaurant and Fish Market — existed for close to 50 years. Even today, I still have people ask about those times or how family members that worked at the restaurant are doing now.
