Status update

“Share what’s new”…
That’s the prompt on Google+ and I kinda like it because it is more challenging than Facebook’s “what’s on your mind…” or Twitter’s “what’s happening?”

Still, I am finding a lot more resharing of content than sharing of new content happening on Google+ and I have to guess that is due to some of the limitations with the current platform. It is accutely painful to share new content with the complete lack of plugins/apps/APIs all those teeny bits of connective tissue coding that have made interacting with other social networks so accessible, so beautifully easy.

Still I am two days in to my one week trial of using Google+ only for status updates – and so far, I’m coping.
