So I’m on Google+ now. So far I like it, though I wish I could get some invites so I could get a couple more of my friends on it. I think when they open it up to more people it will be really cool.
One major reason I like it, and I know it makes me sound like a total bitch, is because the people who will be on it are the people I can be myself around. On FB I take a second to think to myself “should I post this and risk alienating my family/coworkers?” On Twitter I’m like “WOO HOO MY CRAZY RUNS WIDE AND IT RUNS DEEP.” Most FB friends would probably be terribly alarmed to know I scour the internets for hard yaoi. Twitter friends take it as part of my adorable fujoshi insanity.
How is it that a community of people who communicate mainly in 140-character messages are closer to me than my own family? Case in point: people I don’t even know sent me money and formula to take care of my sick kittens. The people I know on FB didn’t even answer the original post with “I hope they feel better.”
Anyway, I like Google+ right now. I’m hoping it hangs around and doesn’t go the way of Google Wave.
