Ok, I admit it, I am possibly NOT the most technically savvy person out there. My children have more knowledge about the world of computers than I do, and I include my 7yr old in that sweeping statement as well.
HOWEVER. I know my way around social media, and all the social media tools.
I'm like a teenage girl when it comes to knowing how to communicate with you.
BUT Google+ has me stumped.
I've tried. Oh my God how I have tried. I put people in little circles, all the time, feeling as if it is I who has been dropped into a circle of hell from which there is no escape.
If you have Google+ comments on your blog, then I am sorry, I have not yet worked out how the hell I am meant to comment on your site.
Google it seems are trying to push everyone towards Google+ like a well meaning grandparent towards the next-door neighbours ugly son. (It isn't the best at doing the job, but you know what? It's there, and you are fucked if you do, and fucked if you don't)
I plus one things, and yet I am still not sure what that actually does. Is it a "like" or god forbid, a "poke" (Pokes are so 2012)
If I share things with my circles, are there people in other circles who they can then share it with? Do they do this? WHY? Are they talking about me behind my back?
It is like being back in school!!!! I don't know what circle I am meant to fit into. Perhaps I don't want to fit into a circle. perhaps I want to be square, or a Rhombus. (Rhombus is an awesome word, try it)
Surely I cannot be the only one who doesn't get Google + and all it is about?
And now Youtube are accepting Google+ comments too?
TOO MUCH GOOGLE, GOOGLE EVERYWHERE.
Am I alone in not understanding Google+ or is it one of those things that we are all doing and yet don't have a clue what it is actually about?
Let me know.
PS, I don't not fail to see the irony of me Google +'ing this post.
