Yes, the die hard hipsters on the internet might flock to G to be the first kids on the block embracing the new network, and might even have their own little Google Plus cliques, but most of those who have gone there have found it to be an empty room. They’ve left one party at Facebook, which yes, may have been going on a bit too long, and could be starting to wind down, but arrived at a new one where simply no one has shown up. And those who have arrived aren’t exactly calling their friends to come on over, as there isn’t a whole lot to see. It’s the same party with different decorations but only 3% of the guests. It might be nice there’s better music or drinks, but none of that matters without anyone there to hang out with.
This is bunk. Paul Tassi of Forbes, are you reading the same Google+ we are? If so, shut up. This isn’t the experience of a lot of G+ users. Also, why are we judging a service based on a month of usage? We’re comparing it to services that have been on the market for years already. Let’s compare it to Google Buzz, a service that people stopped caring about after a couple of weeks. People still care about Google+. Linkbait if we’ve ever seen it.
