I have never liked Facebook. I just don't get it. The only reason I went on there was that my old next neighbour invited me. He was also Clare’s uncle. And to boot, he was my old football coach. So I just couldn’t say no to him. And, then once you are on there, well, they’ve got you. I never use it. I don’t know what my password is. I am sure it works for lots of people, but it isn’t for me.
But I do like Google+. I like the idea of the circles. So you choose who to share stuff with. I like that idea. I get that. I think restriction is a big idea. If apple were going to do a social media website, it may well have looked and worked like this.
Right now, the audience is small. And there's plenty of room on the train. But I know that is going to change. And when it changes, it will change quickly. And it will change en masse.
So before it arrives at a station called Mainstream, I am using my time to learn about what it can do.
Which is a lot.
