After spending several hours with Google+, MG Siegler really likes it so far:
Google has done a very good job with the early execution. Can they maintain that? Once the novelty is gone, will there be a reason to use it? And will the idea scale — meaning both in absolute size and in terms of moving beyond an early adopter market?
His mostly glowing review touches on all the major elements, as well as giving some insight into where things might be going with Google+ in the future. I’m not on Facebook or Google+, but after reading Siegler’s review, Google’s new social network actually sounds far more interesting to me than Facebook’s. Of course, the issue isn’t the features, it’s the users — will my friends and family be compelled to join Google+?
