0. phoneArena 30 Jan 2013, 15:34 posted on

A couple days ago, word came out that Google+ had surpassed Twitter to become the 2nd largest social network in terms of active users. That was some big news, and now the Google+ app for Android has gotten an update to add a couple of nice new features, including additional Community moderator controls, and more...

I might start hanging out there more. I just dont do ANY social networks anymore. So its not just Google+ I rarely go to...its all of them.

Might actually be better for me since no one I know uses it.

Google+ as a Facebook alternative - Still kinda a ghost town.

But they have done a ton of remodeling I've noticed, and have read a lot lately where there's so much more to it. I really need to look at it again, because there is indeed activity.

(However, from what I can see - some of that may be forced, just because of the integration needed now on youtube, etc...)

No site can be a Facebook alternative!
Facebook is Facebook, and Twitter is Twitter.

I use Google+ regularly and my community shows that it is nothing like a ghost town.

Google+ is your personalized Google service, you can reach your search query returns without being forced to type anything. As far as I have experienced Google is the best "did you mean" and "you may like" engine. Twitter and Facebook also tries that marvel, but so far I was only amazed at their recommendation routine, in a bad way.

If you use an Android phone and your primary e-mail service is gmail, you are missing a lot unless you participate in the Google+ community.

My flow page was like a ghost town at first, yet Google has learned a lot about me and now he is closing in to be my best friend. Just like a super duper robot with a great AI, it was locked in the closet when we first met. Now, I understand its value and we are happy together.

I highly recommend G+...
