For the past week, I’ve been running a small experiment. I’ve been mirroring most of my Twitter and Facebook posts to Google+ to see how the different communities respond. The result: Google+ makes me happier.
The disclaimers: This is just me, your mileage may vary. Google+ is a still a new and closed system. These results may look very different in a month. And most importantly, I believe that the quality of a social network service has a lot more to do with who’s on it than the technology behind it.
But still, there’s something about Google+ that is very soothing to the ego. From Twitter, Google+ borrows the broadcast model of distribution: Anybody can follow the public posts of a Google+ user, just as anyone can follow everything posted into a public Twitter profile. That means people can like you more than you like them. Lovely.
So I can see now that I have more than 2,200 people following me in Google+, or to use G+ terminology, I’m “in their circles.” There’s no need for me to “encircle” them back, although if any of them want to comment on a Google+ post I make, I’ll see the comments in my stream. I can then add the users I like to my own circles to see everything they want to share. (I’m not a Google+ superstar, by the way. There are other tech media personalities with more than ten times my followers.)
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
