The truth is there are only so many hours in the day. Social networking has created a new burden opportunity to network and reach out, but it has also added a level of obligation to stay 'relevant.'
With Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in, text messaging voice mail and, of course, email, our time is is spoken for before we even log on to the computer or pick up our smart phone.
So with that in mind, I have decided it is time to let one go...Ciao, Google +; it is time for us to break-up.
Public break-ups are everywhere (Tom and Katie?), and this one is no different. If you are in one of my Google + Circles, I just wanted to let you know, I won't be 'circling' anymore.
One of the things many of us love about Google is its seemless integration, but frankly, when it comes to my social networking I don't like the integration. What control I can maintain, while over-sharing, is important to me. If I log in to Google to take advantage of my news preferences, it is closely tied to Google +. I don't want to share my reading habits with my social network. Call me, private (hardly), but there is really no reason for this level of sharing.
And honestly, I have just not seen the kind of participation in Google + that I experience in my other networks.
So goodbye, Google +. I have to say, I won't miss you. Almost no one came out to play.
