This might go down as one of the most blasphemy articles to date for me, especially for my Google+ friends. Having been away from Facebook for well over 3 years, well I may have had an account but my total login time is less than 5 hours easy. Taking time away from things can really put things in perspective, especially when you first join a new social media site.
Google+ is not new to me by any means, I have been apart of it since the beta days under another Gmail account(one I don’t use, and haven't used in at least 2 years). Facebook is the same, as I moved to it when it was “college students only” and Myspace, yes that once dominant social media site was still gaining all the attention.
The main thing I have learned is the fact that followers will be followers, and I don’t mean that in the sense of “circled people” or “Facebook followers”, but more in a sense that people have a tendency to be sheep. Now don’t take that the wrong way, it’s a natural way we as humans work, don’t forget we were once a primate like animal(don’t think monkey, but rather monkey like) until some miraculous thing turned our one dimensional minds into one that can consciously understand what “tomorrow” is in an intellectual way.
Facebook to me at one time was the devil, now I still am wary of some of the closed door conversations with the government, but there is no denying that anyone who isn't into the tech world or looking to jump to the newest social media site every few years has stuck with Facebook. This can cause a bit of a rift with some users who have adopted to the social life of Google+, that is why the saying “don’t put your eggs in one basket” should come to mind.
Whether this is true for everyone or just to a few, the fact is that the world is better with more than one things, it creates competition between businesses which in turn means better products and services for us.
