Google Abandons Forced-Sign-Up Policy for GooglePlus | SiliconANGLE

Google Abandons Forced-Sign-Up Policy for GooglePlus | SiliconANGLE | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it

"Google seems to have relented on its tough policy towards its not-so-popular socila network..."

Jessica Kelly's insight:

Key takeaways:

"This could be a sign of Google+’s lingering death..."

OK, but I'm skeptical simply b/c we've heard that so many times before.

"When Google first began this policy it was understandable--with most people content with Facebook and other social networks, it had to do something to get people using its platform."
Sure, or they could have tried creating something people would *want* to join.

"We should note Google+ hasn’t been totally banished. Users are free to avoid it, but those wishing to leave app reviews or upload videos to YouTube will still need an account..."
Ah, so they're still not quite confident in the quality of G+, right?

Is GooglePlus the Antisocial Network? | Social Media Today

Is GooglePlus the Antisocial Network? | Social Media Today | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
While there may be a subculture of Google+ zealots who treat Google+ like a forum instead of a social network, the majority of people who love Plus are using it, according to Michael Reynolds, as a “source of content, inspiration, and communication” – more like a reader, a place to keep up with mentors, creators, influencers, and thought leaders. For most, Google+ is an antisocial network.
Jessica Kelly's insight:

I think "antisocial" can accurately describe G+ for many (not all) users, and I love Chris Abraham's hypothesis that many Plussers may be introverts who could use this tagline: “Google+: Leave me alone, I am happy right where I am, hanging with people just like me, allegedly from around the world.”  Allegedly! :-D

Learn about often-ignored features of major social networks, and how you can use them to actually benefit your social media efforts.
Jessica Kelly's insight:

Feeling a bit burned out today on lists of best tools, new features, and obvious best practices? Yeah, me too -- same old. This post, however, is different. These aren't new features, and their best use may not be so obvious. Some food for thought on TW and FB:

 

> What will we do if our Twitter Favorites go live to follower feeds? Will we start curating them compulsively?

 

> Why don't people use Facebook lists, either the FB-defined "Interest" kind or lists of their own creation? Why would anyone let FB pick what they see in their feeds? This is always mind-boggling to me, and so I'm very happy to see the list suggestion here.

GooglePlus Adds View Count to Profiles and Pages | The Social Media Hat | SocialMoMojo Web | Scoop.it
While people and pages have always shown how many other people have circled them, Google has now added the ability to see how many times your profile or page has been Viewed. +Kenneth Manesse Sr. pointed out that now, on your profile page next to your follower count, there's a new metric called Views. The metric is there for both personal profiles and business Pages.
Jessica Kelly's insight:

While I'm honestly still pondering the value of a "views" metric on G+, I do find it interesting that G+ is dropping its "in circles" language in favor of "followers" -- more copycat SM.
