Google+ is growing on me

No, I’m not about to post another review of Google+. However, I just had to get off my chest that I am starting to really like it…. a lot. Circles is a great feature. I’ve just been looking over my Circles and seeing the simplicty of the setup.

Being able to target your posts is simply brilliant.

For example I can post local information to my “Local” circle which means I don’t have to spam everyone that follows me with information they really don’t want to hear / don’t care about.

I have a Circle for Warwicktweetup which allows me to communicate ONLY with the WTU members.

I have a test Circle that allows me to test out ways of using Google+ or for testing out other stuff without filling up streams.

It’s growing on me and I think it will be a long-term relationship.

Oh and the iPhone app makes it almost fully mobile (almost as it’s not possible to share posts, edit comments or target comments to individuals). The iPhone ap will develop further and should become very good indeed.

No, I won’t be leaving Twitter.

I am @craigt44 on Twitter and you can find me on Google+ here.
