    Default Google +

    Called the next big thing, and touted as the killer of Facebook, here comes Google+.

    Five summers ago, the knights of Facebook killed the lords of Orkut over yon' glen.
    Their Lordships, Google and their thousands of underlings retaliated,
    But yet, true to their word, they were never evil!
    Be it the famed Wave, be it the Buzz of dark infamy,
    Never, never did they harm the knights who ruled the vast and great lands of the internet!
    But here comes a new foe! An adversary none has heard of!
    The knights are scarcely ready, and the tavern's are abuzz with stories,
    Of their end drawing near!


    All that crap aside, what went around, is apparently coming around. Google + kills Facebook kills Orkut.
    What do you think? Anybody with an account? An invite please? is it really that great? If it is, then Karma SURE IS a female dog!

    *Karma's a b****

    I think either Litch, Zeke or Stevious said they were in the Beta..
    It's quite an annoying thing where FB will still have all the cool
    games & stuff for a long while but I'm a Google supporter & was never
    too keen on FB.

    I don't think either have "great" game,s just convenient games, there is a big difference. though thats just my opinion.

    I said cool not great, that would have been quite an overstatement indeed :P

    Their games are more addictive & they have quite valid reasons for that, if you
    could play farmville freely on a plain web browser site it would probably have more users
    than Travian, though FB does up the user-base since of sharing & cooperation with friends.

    The games do draw people to the website, but its annoying to be constantly told that so-and-so has built this, built that and all. Disable notifications for one, half a dozen others pop up. I'd put my money on Google any given day, but social networking is not their strong point really. Still, the initial reception to + has been good....

    It doesn't matter how good they make the site, they've already
    admitted that it would be a massive feat for them to convert enough
    users from facebook to them, facebook is enough for most people &
    only the most extreme of social networkers or those who don't do much
    of it or any at would choose to use both as for the majority of others
    they're far more likely to remain facebookers.

    The thing is, most people just want to join the site that their friends are all already on. And right now that's facebook. I might try this new one, but I'd only do it if all my friends were joining too.
