Google+ Does Have a Perception Problem

I agree with Jeremiah that Google does have a public perception issue going on with Google+.

Remember that smart kid who sat in the front of the class, but was ignored by the cool kids? That’s a good metaphor for what Google+ is going through. – Jeremiah Owyang

JASE on Google+I’m not so sure that Google is the smartest kid in class but it sure does seem that Google+ was written for programmers by programmers. Google has tied search engine credit so tightly with article sharing on Google+ that surely the amount of linked information will drive off the casual social media socialites.

What do you think? Is Google+ on the right track? What would you request that Google improve if you could bend their ear for a few minutes?

I’m listening to What Kind Of Woman Is This by Buddy Guy right now.

Bluesman about a Bluesman

“If you’re interviewing Muddy [Waters] like you’re doing me right now, you’d be patting your feet as he talked.”

– Buddy Guy on Muddy Waters’ natural voice that was born to sing the blues.
