I realised that one of the reasons I am a little apprehensive about getting too excited about Google+ is that I have a history of getting excited about services and how much better they are at certain things than, say, Twitter only to find the services are bought out, fade away or just die. Illustrations of my point:
- Jaiku is not better than Twitter, I just prefer it;
- Why You’re Wrong About FriendFeed;
- You Should Be Spending More Time on Google Buzz;
- A Few Thoughts About Google+.
I am basically the anti-trend spotter so if I decide and publicly declare that Google+ is the best thing ever (since the last best thing) and way better than Twitter (I may have done this already, come to think of it) then that could spell the end of Google+ as a viable service.
