Google+ still dead in the water in terms of social sharing

Vyralize: Social plugin & analytics giant Gigya is reporting that only 2% of content is being shared via Google+ even after Google themselves report huge registration figures. (Gigya, Google Plus, Services, Web)

All they needed to do was make Google+ thje same at the original Facebook with better privacy but they had to add useless stuff , the news feed has stuff on it you dont want to see and it goes on and on. If they keep it simple with the best privacy people will flock to Google+ and to add salt to the wound the new layout is a disaster

I haven't used mine in maybe 2 years now.

I hate the circles idea, honestly.

Facebook is sliding downhill for me too. Can't even see my friends updates because its all buried under "promoted" posts that stay at the top for a week......

I accidentally got one a few weeks ago. It is bad that I managed to accidentally get a plus account. The problem with plus is it tried too hard to be facebook

it was good in its infant days. but it slowly went to shit with the fb updates and limitations and the new rules.

When it first started, Google pretty much shoved it into every Gmail account. Thats how I ended up with one.

The only thing that really kept me around was using the chat thing. So we could see history, and add people easily.

You should install social fixer for Facebook. It fixes a lot of the problems on facebook and gets rid of those promoted posts. I have to agree though. Facebook is changing a lot and is getting worse all the time. I only have a facebook account because all my friends are on there> They should have just kept facebook the way it was orifinally.

i think circle is the better... at least you have to add someone under one circle or the other like - colleagues/friends/families/i don't know who/ignore etc.

FB is suggesting ppl to group them... and yeah.. you don't get all of your friends' updates unless you've grouped them under "close friends" which is pretty much what G+ was doing to start off with.

I mean i quit on it because they wanted to link everything under 1 account and I wasnt avin that.

I got trapped with that on YouTube. They made the option to keep your username a very tiny link initially and I thought you had no choice but to use your real name. Finally was able to revert after some time but it's silly they that want us under one account. Gets annoying if you have different uses for different Google services.

I don't know what everyone's problem with Google+ is.
fatstarr  +   858d ago
lack of privacy outside the network, everything links to your g+ and some people dont notice it until its too late.
steve30x  +   858d ago
Google+ is all over the place and isnt easy to use
KwietStorm  +   858d ago
Well that just makes me laugh.

not even the mandatory sign up through other services couldn't save it.

No one even uses Garbage+, I'm even more mad at the fact that they tried pushing it to Youtube and it still fails.

I'll tell you the number one problem with their system... stop shoving it in everyone's face. I use it mostly for work related stuff, I have around 24 people in my circles... SO STOP ASKING ME TO INVITE MORE EVERY TIME I LOG ON!!! It's not even a side bubble... they take you to an entire page with a list of people asking whether you want to recommend them to it time, and time again.

Google+ is too similar to Facebook, it doesn't offer anything new. My friends are bored of Facebook and have moved to instagram, twitter, mobile apps etc. Also, the interface is a bit confusing for newcomers. Those which weren't interested, but signed up to check it out anyway tend not to stick around long.
