http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14928383 here's a blog post about Facebook's latest moves to compete with Twitter and Google+. In it, I refer to Google+ as a niche geek community - fair?

- I think 'geek' is short selling it a tad. Being a geek myself, I see precious little geeky content going past me. G+ is arguably the best photo sharing site on the internet (for content and interaction combined). It seems to have a flourishing artistic community.
Oh, and it is the best (most active) place to talk about what G+ is.Sep 15, 2011
- it is important to understand the difference between a Geek and a Nurd.Sep 15, 2011
- Definitely "niche" to say the least. Almost everyone I mention it to hasn't a clue what it is!Sep 15, 2011
- At the moment v fair. I'm a proud geek!Sep 16, 2011
- given that this is Google's 2nd... or third? go at social networking very fair. Word hasn't gotten out yet - Google seems to rely very heavily on its own users promoting it - which may have worked for Facebook but not so successful for other sites. Maybe Google actually needs to push this like it does chromeSep 17, 2011
- It may be fair. On the other hand, some of us resisted Facebook. But for some reason, I'm quited pulled towards Google+. I think the jury is out on GP. If Google sink a lot of money into advertising and promoting Google+. it could easily lose it's geeky image and catch on. Only time will tell I suppose.Sep 17, 2011
