I still don't understand why G+ never caught on. For me FB is wayyyy too busy with panes and club, and groups, and businesses, and news, and election interference, and the bird site at 140, and now at 280 was just not enough. I always found G+ to be the perfect balance between the two. It really does boggle my mind that no one likes it. The only thing I can think, is Google didn't find a way to appeal to peoples' egos enough, since that's what social media seems to be about for most people.
@Ricardus I'm going to miss G+, TBH. It had a much better model than FB.
@gesslar YES! How did people not see that, considering google OWNS the damn internet! How could they not make this work?!
@Ricardus I always liked the way that G+ let you organize users. I understand Diaspora worked like that too, but I never got into that one.
@maiki Someone else mentioned the nymwar. I don't recall it. All I know is Jeri Ryan (7 of 9 from Voyager) used to reply to me on G+ so it will forever be remembered fondly.
@maiki I think someone has. I've seen it come up in her twitter feed before. But then again, after what happened to WilW, she might not wanna come here out of solidarity.
@Ricardus Quite possible.
