Social Networking

Posted on July 3, 2011

Google+ is another Facebook. It may be nice but we should all remember that it is basically the same thing. That may be a positive or a negative for you, but the same conversation that we’ve been having about Facebook applies to Google+. If we want to network with people, perhaps it is worthwhile to consider existing tools. Blogs for general sharing (blogs that live on your own server!), email for 1-to-1 correspondence, IRC for chat and so on. You don’t need a third party to mediate your relationships.

Enjoy the XKCD on the topic.
