Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - First Look Google+

« The Upside of Risk | Main | How Google+ Addressed Useful Network Features »


good point. Thank you for sharing the link to your thoughts. We're off to a productive conversation with Google, I think. So far, they have been listening and participating, as opposed to what it felt like in other social networks early on.

there is one fundamental difference with Facebook: and that is the trust factor. People have been thinking "in Google we trust" and there is responsibility that goes with that, to keep that trust. Facebook has done the exact opposite. It continues to demonstrate the many ways in which you cannot trust it...

To me, that is the deal breaker. Ditto, I am iterating my thinking as I go.

I'm also thinking there is a bit of caution over pulling other services in before they field tested G+ on some features. So far, it looks like they are being very responsive to feedback, which is a good starts.
