Now that we’ve all had some time to test out Google+ and the excitement has died down a little, can we go ahead and call it a failure? Or is it still too early to dig it a grave?
Forbes writer Paul Tassi is officially calling Google+ dead. When he clicks on his newsfeed, all he sees is “tumbleweed blowing through the barren, blank page”. He’s also calling it a “a vast and empty wasteland, full of people who signed up but never actually stuck around to figure out how things worked in this new part of town”.
When he heads back on over to Facebook, he sees a vibrant community full of people still posting updates, still posting photos and still as active as ever.
Sure, people are complaining about Facebook and some of its privacy issues or lack of certain features they want, but they don’t seem to be flooding the gates of Google+. They’re still on Facebook.
So what’s the one flaw Tassi says Google+ has? It’s simple really. He says, “It’s not Facebook”.
So tell us – is Google+ a failure or is it still to early to make a call like this?
