I’ve been spending quite a lot of time on Google+ lately. After I get bored of Reader, Twitter and Facebook, I turn to Google+, where there is a fascinating “What’s Hot” (on mobile) or “Explore”(on desktop) section. It turns up very cool videos like the one in the recent post, it turns up all those memes and cat pictures (okay fewer cat pictures these days), and tons of interesting stuff. And I should point out, not that many of them are too silly. Alot of informative ones, many awesome photo-shares, travel destinations, out of the world photos. Yup. And videos, inspiring videos, talks, etc. That’s what Facebook used to be like, one of its phases anyway. Nowadays, I don’t recognise it anymore. I don’t know what it does. So that’s why I hang out (pun unintended) more on G+. If nothing else, for the nice photos. I like nice photos. Journalism photos in news are all boring, straight-frontal view point, unexciting, uninspiring. You should check it out. And that Coca-Cola SkyFall thing, totally totally hilarious.
[Plus(again, no pun) it helps that the big G owns YouTube, and big G pushes out lots of news, posts, blogs, interactions, announcements, videos, and all sorts of news to the world. Facebook and Apple are pretty quiet companies, I think they are too stressed out. Microsoft is on a >$1 billion Surface/Win8 marketing blitz (quite the budget huh), so you will see them a lot in the coming months. Google Zeitgeist is awesome. Lots of really really good speakers there. If you google for it, look for videos, not the search result history that goes by the weird same name. Actually, why not, the link here http://www.youtube.com/user/zeitgeistminds/ZeitgeistMinds contains enough material for a university module or course. But it’s probably over the head for most undergrads.]
